Desert Vista Volleyball Team Holds Raffle for Teammate Battling Cancer

Evan Johnson, a senior at Desert Vista High School, has had a rough year. In July 2014 he was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, which is a rare form of bone cancer, and he’s had 22 chemo treatments since then, according to the Ahwatukee Foothills News. But, he’s also been a major supporter of his fellow teammates on the school’s volleyball team. And to show their gratitude and to help Johnson out, the team held a raffle during the last home game on May 5 to raise money for his medical bills.

“He’s a big supporter of the bench, always very excited for everyone playing,” said Andrew Garner, a friend and teammate, told the newspaper. “He loves helping out at practice when he’s able to go. He never brings a bad attitude and is always energetic.”

Among the items featured in the raffle were a signed guitar from Alice Cooper and a signed jersey from Chris Mullin.
