In Honor of Timothy Mills Johnson

Timothy Mills Johnson

Update 12/17: We reached our goal of $3,000 through the project. Thank you to all who have donated. We built this page not just to raise money but to have a place for comments, and those have meant so much to us. Now we'll turn it over to Kent and Debbie Wells and their team running a charity tennis tournament on Tim's behalf next month. Happy holidays, all. Tim would wish the same.

Update 11/28: Thanks again to all who have donated. We're almost at our goal of $3,000. There also will be a tennis tournament in Tim's name at the Army-Navy Country Club on Jan. 11. Glad to provide info to anyone interested.

Update 10/23: I can't tell you how much we appreciate all the support and donations in Tim's name. He used to play Scrabble with our kids every Thanksgiving, always beating them with $50 words until Annie upset him back in in 2005. We put the score sheet on the refrigerator until he comes back six months later, takes it down and says, "That shouldn't count. I didn't know I had multiple myeloma." Please share this page as much as you can. Here's a piece on Tim:

Help us honor Tim while making a difference in myeloma research. Tim battled multiple myeloma to a standoff for 12-1/2 years until his passing on October 14, 2018.

The Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF), along with its research and medical industry partners, has fueled more studies, initiated more trials, developed more treatments, introduced more medicines, and have had a far greater impact than any other organization on myeloma. While the MMRF has made enormous progress, they still have much to do and cannot continue to do great research without your support.

Please consider joining me to fight multiple myeloma. Together we can make a difference.

About the MMRF:
The mission of the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) is to find a cure for multiple myeloma by relentlessly pursuing innovation that accelerates the development of next-generation treatments to extend the lives of patients. Founded in 1998 by Kathy Giusti, a multiple myeloma patient, and her twin sister Karen Andrews as a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization, the MMRF is a world-recognized leader in cancer research. The MMRF continues to disrupt the industry today, as a pioneer and leader at the helm of new research efforts.  Since its inception, the organization has raised over $330 million and directs nearly 90% of the total funds to research and related programs.

Tim Johnson was the first reporter I worked with when I started in TV News, serving the people of Jamestown, NY and the Chautauqua Region. There was so little TV coverage in the area, that when people said the TV people are coming, they meant me and Tim. We were the TV News in our town, and Tim had a passion for covering things that were truly important. Great experience and memories.
6. Tamara Browne
In honor of Tim who was a friend to many and a beacon of light in the community.

Tim was a wonderful, wry, optimistic swing dance friend. Because of him, I attended the Congressional Baseball Games. I was preparing for extensive surgery and knew he was recuperating at his sister's. In his low-key way, he texted that he was getting better and we'd be dancing at Glen Echo again soon. I happened to send Tim an email today and received the incredibly sad news. He gave joy to so many and he'll remain in my thoughts. My condolences to his family who meant so much to him. R.I.P., dear friend.

Tim Johnson's lasting impact on the Capitol Hill Tennis community and greater metro area will endure. He encouraged all of us through patient and diligent instruction, not only on the principles of the game of tennis (team work, respect of other players, physical and mental discipline), but the importance of helping others through his many charitable donations and support of MMRF. He did all this in service to others while facing significant physical challenges. He is missed tremendously by all of us fortunate to have known him. May Tim's legacy of teaching and charitable contributions continue on through the tennis community. Capitol Hill Tennis Club

Tim, you were a great friend and mentor. I will miss playing tennis with and against you. You taught me about living with class and dignity. I will miss learning from you and miss chatting about grand slams and politics. I will never forget playing at your courts and all that you did for Capitol Hill Tennis Club. As long as I'm a member, I will work to pass on your legacy and celebrate your memory.

Tim was incredibly kind, generous with his time, and fun to listen to on the multiple occasions when he helped me research and write about the Congressional Baseball Game as a reporter. His love of life, the game, and public service shone through every word.
