Go Bo! A Fighter Until the End

The world lost an amazing kid in the early morning hours on September 28, 2012. Bo Johnson faced cancer full on, but eventually lost his battle against Extramedullary Acute Myeloid Leukemia (EM ALM) at 3:30 am on Thursday. He was only 13.

It's difficult to remain upbeat and positive at a time like this. My son asked me the unanswerable question, "Mom why do great kids like Bo have to die and all of these bad people continue to live?" I don't know. I just don't know. I cannot even offer an answer. Only that this courageous boy who fought so very hard is now finally at peace and not in pain. He made an impact in the short time he was here.

Bo's message of helping others, YOLO, and Pay It Forward will live on through The Go Bo! Foundation. Bo requested that the funds go toward finding a cure for childhood cancers and helping others. Hope is still alive through Bo's foundation that a cure will be found for EM ALM leukemia and no one will have to suffer like Bo. Go Bo!
