Danny Johansen, my brother has been in Law Enforcement for over 30 years.  He was a Police Officer for many years and after a career ending accident was currently working in Security.  I am a Communications Specialist with over 30 years in service.  We are a strong blue and gold family.

On July 20th, Danny was admitted into the hospital, on July 21st he was diagnosed with Necrotizing Fasciitis, the flesh eating bacteria.  He began the fight of his life, he has endured 13 surgeries to this point with an unknown amount more to come.  He has a large open wound on his abdominal wall that measures 75 cm by 25 cm connected to a wound vac 24/7.  We are hoping that skin grafts may start sometime next week.

Danny is unable to work, we are not sure how many months he will be in the hospital, we are hoping that he will be home by the end of the year.  His medical bills are mounting, but I am more concerned with being able to provide for his care once he is able to return home.

All monies will go directly to his home health care and support. All donations made here through OfficerDown.US are 501c3 tax deductible.
