Local patient receives SBTF act of kindness

Ellijay teachers rally around one of their own after rare tumor diagnosis

Christian Johnson discovered she had a brain tumor and her world changed. So many in our community understand exactly what she experienced and continues to experience as she undergoes treatment.

While at her treatment facility, Christian received an act of kindness as part of the SBTF Lighten the Load patient initiative. This connected her with the Foundation and she shared her interview with us.

“I have a grade 3 anaplastic astrocytoma, which is a rare malignant tumor,” says Johnson. “It took me a while to process that malignant meant cancerous.”

She was interviewed this week and shares her story at https://www.fox5atlanta.com/news/ellijay-teachers-rally-around-one-of-their-own
