Johnny's Road To Recovery

Back in September, Johnny was diagnosed with a rare auto-immune disease called Sarcoidosis. Sarcoidosis is a chronic disease that causes granulomas to develop throughout the body. Currently there is no known cure for this disease. After several months of treatment, Johnny did not have any relief from this disease. At the end of January, he went back to Parkland Hospital (Dallas, TX) to undergo more tests. It was diagnosed that Johnny has stage 4 Hodgkin's Lymphoma in addition to sarcoidosis. Soon, Johnny will begin chemotherapy and radiation to fight this disease. As you may know, cancer treatment and tests are expensive, so this GoFundMe page was created to help Johnny and Marianne combat some of the costs. 

Thank you for taking the time to read this! We are prayerful that God will provide healing and comfort to Johnny during this time!

Update on Johnny: Since the original diagnosis of stage 4 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, Johnny has received 8/12 chemotherapy treatments. This chemo is nicknamed “The Red Devil” and is very strong. Today, Johnny received his first PET scan since the beginning of his treatment to see if the chemotherapy treatment was effective. Overall, the treatment had mixed results. In some parts of his body the cancerous area shrunk or went away; however, it was discovered that the Lymphoma had traveled to other parts of his body — collarbone, lung, and vertebrae. After meeting with the oncologist, Johnny will begin a more aggressive chemo treatment. The doctors are hopeful this round of chemo will eradicate the cancer from his body.

Please pray with us that Johnny will be cancer free at the end of this treatment!
