A few minutes with Ken Johnson

July 30, 2018

North Carolina native Ken Johnson knows what hard work looks like. He grew up on a dairy farm milking more than 50 cows multiple times a day, joined the Army right out of high school and has been fighting multiple myeloma for the past 20 years. We recently sat down with Johnson to talk about how he made a connection with UNC Lineberger, his involvement with the Patient and Family Advisory Council and why he feels volunteering is something everyone should do.
