Chris Johnson was 38 years old when he received the news that his life would soon be over.
The son, father, and husband had to realize he would no longer see his family again.
After finding blood in his urine Chris was taken to the emergency room where doctors diagnosed him with a rare form of kidney cancer.
It’s called renal medullary carcinoma.
After his diagnosis in 2011 Chris died 15 months later.
Johnson says it’s what her son wanted because there was little advocacy for the rare and deadly kidney disease.
As part of a major fundraiser Chris’ foundation is holding its 1st Annual 5K Run and Walk in Sugar Land this Saturday May 31 at 8:30 am.
Those who would like to participate should meet the supporters at the Sugar Land Memorial Park – 15300 University Boulevard in Sugar Land!
