Cherokees have made an enormous impact in the fight against leukemia, as transplant surgery has saved a boy’s life.
The son of a Cheroke, Iowa, woman, Daniel G. Johnson, had a blood clot in his liver.
After a week of surgery, he was in remission.
Now, doctors have successfully removed the clot and are on track to remove another in the coming weeks.
Johnson is a member of the Cherokas Community Church, which has a long history of helping those in need.
He is a former Marine, a retired bank teller and is married with three kids.
The Cherokais are a small community in Iowa, which is home to only 1,000 people.
The community members have been working tirelessly to help others and have donated a total of more than $3 million in donations.
“It’s just a big smile to have a kid that you’ve raised that has such a great outlook and outlook on life,” Johnson said.
“I love you all so much, and I want to thank you for everything,” his wife, Sarah, said in a message shared on the church’s Facebook page.
“You’re so awesome, Daniel, and thank you so much.”
The Cheropers are part of a growing number of Cheroks who are raising money for kidney transplants.
The Cheroper community has helped more than 4,000 children and teens die as a result of cancer, heart disease and other life-threatening illnesses, according to a recent report by the National Kidney Foundation.
“Kidney transplanted transplants have saved countless lives across this country, and we are proud to be a part of that progress,” said Dr. Jennifer E. Stokes, the foundation’s medical director.
The donation is the largest kidney transplant in Cherok history, the first in the U.S.
The transplant is part of the foundation and is one of about 50 kidney transplanted at a cost of more the $3,000-$4,000 that is needed.
It’s the largest single donation in the foundation.
“This is the first transplant of a kidney in Cheropies history and one of the largest in the country,” Stokes said.
“The support and support we’ve been able to get from the Cheropie community has been tremendous.
It shows the incredible outpouring of love and support from all across the community.”
Cherokees are a community of nearly 1,600 residents and 1,400 businesses.
They live in a small town that has a population of only about 1,500.
The foundation has a dedicated network of volunteer and community members who are on the ground working with those who need help.
“We’re always going to be working in these communities and we’re always looking for ways to help those who are in need,” Stoke said.
