“One of the saddest things about cancer is that while it can feel like an isolating experience and you’re the only victim, you quickly find that it’s actually a pretty big club that no one asked for.”

Before his diagnosis, Johnny said his main focus in life was performing music and his girlfriend, Tahnee Sims, who was by his side throughout his struggle.

“There’s something about near-death that puts things in perspective for you… Until then, the only real things that mattered in my life, in any order, were performing, recording music, acting, Tahnee, family and partying with friends he wrote.
