My Story

15-year-old, Johnathon Walls was diagnosed with AML during baseball season. Right from the start, the Wilsonville, OR community, and Johnathon's friends showed their support. His baseball teammates all shaved their heads as soon as John started to lose his, the football team wore his number, 44, on their helmets, and even the opposing team wore armbands in support for John. Regarding the support, his mother said, "The kids in the community rose above their own fears and supported John in the most uplifting ways."
