The Michael Johnson Throat Cancer Fund. The funds will be used for Michael's medical costs and related expenses not covered by insurance.

The family and friends of Michael Johnson are uniting to raise money to help him with his battle against throat cancer. Please show your support and help him and his family in their time of need.
Michael was first diagnosed with throat cancer back in 2009. Michael is strong willed and will beat this cancer. His fight got more serious this week when he went into surgery to remove a small tumor from his throat. During that surgery they found more cancer than they were expecting, and they had to remove the larynx in it's entirety. For the time being Michael is left without a voice. He is recovering in the hospital and gaining his strength to go back into surgery here in a few weeks to remove additional cancer from the cartilage in his throat. His wife Janice has been by his side everyday giving him strength and encouragement to get to the other side of this awful situation.
Following this surgery Michael should be Cancer free. He will not be able to escape the mounting medical bills, and time out of work. We are looking to raise money to help pay off medical bills, get enough to get Michael an IPAD or some sort of device he can type into to be able to communicate with his family, friends and co-workers. We also are looking to raise money so that when the time is right, Michael can explore getting a artificial voice box so that he can have a more permanent solution to the problem of not being able to speak.
If you prefer to send a check you can do so by sending it to the following Address:
Janice and Michael Johnson
18740 W. 60th Ave
Golden, CO 80403

Or if you would prefer to speak to a family representative you can do so by contacting Michael's son Tyler Johnson on his email at TylerTravisJohnson@gmail.com.

As you can imagine this has been hard on Michael and all of his friends and family. This is our chance to come together and support The Johnson Family. Michael you are a perfect example of how to stay positive and determined to beat this cancer. We are all here to support you.
