Baltimore is looking to fill the void left by the death of Johnston, the Baltimore Children’s Cancer Charity.
The Baltimore Childrens Cancer Foundation is looking for a new charity director who will lead the effort to support the families of children with cancer.
Since the charity’s inception in 2010, Johnsons family has been touched by the kindness of others.
On Wednesday, he will be honored with the prestigious Johnston Award, an award given to the nation’s top cancer survivor, and the charity will be announcing its new director, Katie G. Johnston, by noon.
Johnsons daughter, Savannah, will also be a part of the announcement.
“The Johnsons are a proud family,” said Heather Smith, Johnsson’s niece and CEO of Johnsons Children’s Hospitality Group.
“Katie and I will be working with the Johnsons to ensure that their beloved Johnsons will always be there to welcome our children and loved ones to our community.”
Johnston, 68, was the first person to donate blood for the first time when he donated blood for a child with Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2011.
Johnsans daughter, a nurse who worked at Johnsons Hospital and Children’s Medical Center, had Hodgkin disease.
He died of Hodgkin lymphoma a year later.
After Johnsons, the Johnsens have been touched and inspired by countless others who have been so kind and kind to our cause.
The Johnsons were always the epitome of that, as the Johnsans said.
We’re thrilled to be able to help the Johnsuns children and families in their time of need.
We will continue to do everything we can to support their family.
We are thankful to Johnston and his wife, Karen, for their years of service to the Johnsseys and Johnsons hospitals, and to John and Savannah for being so kind, caring and kind people.
The Johnsens will hold the award ceremony on Thursday.
Maryland’s Democratic governor, Marilyn Mosby, will host the ceremony.
A press conference is planned at 3 p.m. at the Maryland Statehouse.
It is also being reported that Johnsons foundation is looking at a possible donation of the Johnsson name.
The news comes after a month of criticism from the Johnsones family after the organization’s donation of $15 million to help victims of the deadly 2013 Boston Marathon bombings.
“Johnston is the epitaph of what we do in Baltimore, where we are always grateful for all the kindness and generosity of our community,” said Mary Ann Mazzucchelli, president of Johnsson Children’s Hospitals, on the organizations website.
As part of its charitable giving, Johnsans Children’s also provides free mammograms, free dental care and other health care services to children, women and families living with cancer and other serious health conditions.
