GRANTS PASS, Ore. — On Tuesday afternoon, the Josephine County Sheriff's Office began a GoFundMe campaign for one of their deputies currently fighting cancer.
The campaign's summary, from Sheriff Dave Daniel, says that Deputy Brad Johnson was diagnosed with cancer. He is currently undergoing chemotherapy and a stem cell bone marrow transplant, and is no longer able to work. In fact, according to Sheriff Daniel, he had to be ordered not to work.
Sheriff Daniel says that Deputy Johnson has a family and needs assistance paying for both everyday bills and mounting medical expenses.
"He is a selfless member of the Sheriff’s Office and can always be counted on," Sheriff Daniel said, "During the course of his treatment, he has never asked for help, so I am asking for him."
The goal for Deputy Johnson's GoFundMe campaign is $20,000.
