Tiffany Johnson Needs Your Help and Prayers (Please Assist)

Currently, my life is touched with a heavy hand. My mom, lies in our home in a hospice mode, the clock ticks precious time away. Two other dear friends are personally contending with similar realities…it is sobering, when others say the countdown must begin. But, beyond my immediate world, I received a message from Steve Dally of the Mountain River Fly Shop in Cotter, Arkansas of a struggle that cuts to your heart and requires an immediate response to assist the less fortunate.

Tiffany & Chad Johnson

Tiffany Johnson is struggling with a challenge to her health that is as serious as it can be. If I may use part of Steve’s message to convey the magnitude of the struggle: ‘Tiffany was diagnosed with 3 brain tumors and a spinal tumor this year. The Monday before Christmas she spent 9 hours on an operating table for extremely rare and risky surgery to remove a tumor entwined in her spinal column. Currently she remains paralysed from the waist down, and with limited movement on her left side above the waist. She faces a year of serious therapy to get back on her feet. She is 30. And, at some point in the future at least 1 tumor still needs to be removed from her brain and possibly all 3.’

Tiffany’s husband is a guide. They do not possess the means to address the massive costs for treatments and all the attendant costs that arise. If you have ever been any where near these events, you know how suffocating all this is while you try to focus on the personal commitment right in front of you. Tiffany and Chad need help.

Steve Dally sent me the link to a scheduled fund raiser for January 23, 2010.  Also, note they have a  Facebook link as well.

Send financial assistance, send quality flies for January 23rd and if you have any additional questions or ability to provide aid contact Steve Dally~

    I had just received your email and was typing a reply when I received the pingback on this article.
    I decided to type it here because other need to know as well.
    I always thought you were a pretty decent bloke through the writing in your blog but your response has overwhelmed me.

    It takes a special person to be looking out for others in your own time of need and for you to help out like this is enormously appreciated by myself and I know Tiff and Chad will feel the same way.

    All 3 of us, and I can probably speak for everyone else around our fly fishing world here in Arkansas feels for you at the moment, and our thoughts and prayers are with you, your mom and you family.

    If you ever need to reach out for help yourself you know where to find us.

    Yours humbly and gratefully

    Steve D
