Please help Johnny Miller's family by showing your support. We greatly thank you.

Johnny's in need of serious medical treatment. He has had up to 7 seizures in one day. He currently has several a week after each seizure he looses his memory. He is week and the seizures currently drains him so much all he does not is sleep and barley eats.

Johnny caused a four car accident due to a seizure while driving. He no longer drives and he lost his job due to a seizure while climbing up a ladder a few years ago. He no longer has medical coverage and cannot get the medical attention he needs.

We ask for your help in getting Johnny the medical treatment he greatly needs.
