Get Well Soon Johnny!
He’s hanging in there! Someone bought him a TechDeck Guy Mariano hubba (?) set up– I think its keeping his mind occupied. Im pretty sure hes the only kid on the floor with a TNT/skull tshirt too!
We met Johnny 2 years ago at the Make A Wish Jam in Houston. He was skating the park like a lifer. His positive attitude and great outlook won us all over. He became Real’s youngest pro and we have been proud to make his board since then on the Actions REALized line. Skateboarding and skateboarders came out and together we were able to raise over 16,000 bucks so far for the MAW through the sale of his decks. More importantly Johnny and his family have become part of our family.
Friday Johnny’s parents called and we got the news that Johnny’s cancer has returned. It was one of the roughest calls I have ever received. Johnny is a fighter. His family is amazing. He’s going to pull it.
But he’s going to have a tough few months ahead. Were saving a seat in the van for his first tour - so he has to get well soon!
We created the message board below for you to leave well wishes and words of strength for Johnny and his family. Thank you for being a part of this thing.
