Over a month ago, little four year old Christian Johnson of Lincoln City started acting peculiar. He was suddenly always tired. He didn’t feel good. It quickly got to the point that his parents took him to the doctor – and were horrified at the news. Christian has leukemia.
Off to Portland they went, to Randall Children’s Hospital at Emanuel Medical Center. After a barrage of tests doctors confirmed to Christian’s parents that he has leukemia. They immediately set up an aggressive treatment program. It involves, among other things, twice a week trips to the hospital for an extended period. And of course, the medical bills are already coming in.
Those who might think about contributing a few dollars (or a lot of dollars) to the Johnson family in their time of great need can do so through the website GoFundMe.com. It’s a nationally renown method of allowing caring and compassionate people to contribute what they can in a way that let’s them give their love and best wishes to victims of disease or accidents, regardless of whether or not they know them – and of course by those who know the family all too well and who feel their pain and sorrow as if Christian was their own.
