Christian Johnson

Born: August 21, 2010
Diagnosed: June 26, 2015
Died: April 3, 2016

– Funny – Courageous – Energetic –

Mom, Keisha, describes Christian as “so energetic. ALWAYS moving and running everywhere he needed to be. I literally and constantly said to him ‘slow down’ or ‘wait up.’ Whenever someone called his name he always replied ‘huh?’ Like a little goose and that’s how we started calling Goose. He was the drummer, guitar player, and lead singer in his own band. His twin brother and older brother were only involved when he let them.”

Mom (Keisha) along with Dad (James), twin brother, Zion, and brother, Jordan, want others to know Christian’s story because “My son at first had been diagnosed incorrectly. At the age of four he had been diagnosed as ADHD, mentally handicapped, and finally as bipolar. Those were all wrong. It took his daddy taking him into our pediatrician for a checkup to play football; and him falling down and hitting his head hard enough on the floor to where the doctor was concern enough for to send him for an MRI for us to get a referral to children’s medical in Dallas for us to finally discover what was really wrong with my son. I don’t know if others had been diagnosed incorrectly but for us, I feel that we as a family lost a lot of time when it came to his treatment. No family should lose time with their babies.”
