I have written and re-written this blog post a hundred times in my head and it never sounds right. Bo Johnson, the 13 year old boy that taught a community to love, ended his battle with cancer on Friday as he passed from this life into the next. If anyone had a right complain, and draw into himself out of misery, it was Bo. But he didn't do that. He rallied his town, and his county, and people from all over the world together in a mission for kindness and goodness. He said, "“Love each other, help each other, have your neighbor's back. If you see someone in need — even a stranger — reach out and help. This world can be a better place if we care and help each other.”
A fund was set up for Bo's family to help cover the soaring medical costs of his cancer treatment. As his battle drew to a close, he asked that the funds be used to help others. Among other small, but thoughtful acts, he wanted to take food to the nurses in the hospital where he had stayed, to purchase bathtubs for the children still suffering there, and most of all...he wanted a cure for cancer.
Bo has moved on, but his fight is still here. These cookies were made for a GIANT bake sale that Jill helped organize for the upcoming Fall Fest in Sister Bay, Wisconsin. The proceeds will go to the Go Bo! Foundation for all the good things Bo ever thought of and all the good things he inspired.
