Johnny needs help with his battle against liver cancer. Here's a chance to Give Forward to an individual who has helped others in need.

Johnny Martin, a Veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, served his time for our freedom is now fighting for his life. For the past 30 years he has raised approx. $800,000.00 of much needed money for organizations such as Make a Wish Foundation, Angel Hands Foundation, Epilepsy Foundation, Muscular Dystrophy Association, The Cancer Ride and Primary Children’s Medical Center through motorcycle rides in five different states. Now Johnny needs our help with his own battle. After beginning a six month radical treatment plan for liver cancer, which includes chemotherapy and many oral medications, he was dropped by his insurance company. Johnny’s out of pocket cost for his medications began at $4,687.07 a month! With medical complications this cost continues to increase. Without insurance, he does what he can to keep from being admitted into the hospital but emergency room visits, doctor’s office visits, testing and added medications are financially draining him and wife Shaleen. They have sold many of their belongings in order to help pay for his treatments and medications. Stress and anxiety continue to plague them. Johnny has been told by his doctor that he cannot stop his treatment. If he were to stop taking his meds, this would be detramental to his progress. Johnny’s chances of beating this cancer are good but he MUST continue treatments and medications as prescribed. Any alterations would be detrimental to his progress. With medical bills to cope with Johnny needs our support. Here is an opportunity to pay it forward to an individual that has reached out a helping hand to help others in need. Johnny is determined to beat this cancer, just as he has attacked many obstacles in his life. With his competitive nature pulling him along, Johnny continues to be optimistic and determined to reach remission. Let’s help him keep motivated. Please support Johnny in his fight for life.
