FREDERICK, Md. (DC News Now) — After surviving cancer, a Frederick County man is now giving back with the help of the one non-profit that helped him during his battle with a rare disorder.
Alex Johnson was 15 years old when he was diagnosed with a rare disorder that affects white blood cells.
After undergoing chemotherapy and receiving a port, Alex is now cancer free.
“I picked today specifically because today would have marked the 13th anniversary of having a port put in, during my battle with cancer,” said Alex.
He works as the general manager of Bruster’s in Frederick, Maryland, and says it’s time to give back. Alex chose ‘Casey Cares Foundation’ and says it was an easy non-profit to choose to donate to because the non-profit helped him during his intensive treatment.
