Salute To Bo Johnson By Parade Of Cars In Sister Bay, Door County

As some of you know,  for the past year,  Bo Johnson, a 13 year old resident of Sister Bay has been treated for an extremely rare form of leukemia.  Recently his medical team of doctors at the Children’s Hospital of Milwaukee discharged him for hospice care at his home.  Many people in Door County have rallied to support Bo with cards, letters, donations and displays of orange ribbons (color used in promotions for the fight against leukemia) and “Go Bo” signs adorning trees, lampposts and businesses throughout the county.  One of Bo’s special requests was to take a ride in an orange El Camino automobile.  Paul Seger, a Birchwood Lodge Condo Association Board member and Vice President of GE Capital Fleet Services and  Don Goben of Don Goben Autos were able to locate an El Camino owned by Randy and Martha Soukup of Forestville.   Randy and Martha  offered to drive the orange El Camino up to Sister Bay to give Bo a ride in his dream car.  On Saturday, September 15th, Randy and Martha not only brought their own car up to Sister Bay, but to Bo’s surprise and delight, they invited other family members and friends to join them with their collectible cars for Bo’s enjoyment.  That particular day Bo was not able to ride in the El Camino because his medical condition had worsened.  However, he was overjoyed by this special surprise and it lifted his spirits to know that these people made such a special effort for him.  We at Birchwood Lodge want to offer our thanks and appreciation to Randy and Marth Soukup, John Soukup, who delayed his own cancer treatment so that he could bring his car up to Sister Bay, Rick and Polly Soukup, Gary and Vicky Soukup, Randy Soukup, Jeremy Kiehnau and Mike Kelsey who all drove up from southern Door County and Sturgeon Bay as part of this special time for Bo.  This was another example in a long string of generous donations and well wishes that people in Door County have been providing to Bo.  Bo and his mom, Annika Johnson have been very touched and gratified by the love and support that family,  friends and even strangers have shown them.   Bo has said that he wants the “Go Bo” campaign to go on. The “Go Bo Fund” has been established at Associated Bank in Sister Bay for anyone who’d like to make a contribution.
