The Bethanie Johnson Family

Bethanie was diagnosed with Leukemia when she was just ten months old. She underwent treatment for 2 years, which consisted of a mixture of inpatient and outpatient visits, and in July of 2013, Bethanie had completed her treatment. At Dance Marathon 25, she will be walking across the stage for graduation, after just passing her five years cancer free mark! Dance Marathon provided support to Bethanie and her family during her treatment and still continues to do so today. Dance Marathon has been their family, their lifeline when needed, and their friends. For Bethanie and her three sisters, Dance Marathon has brought them new friends and a reason to dance.
