YUMA, Ariz. – A Yuma boy has lost his life to cancer Friday after more than a year of fighting the disease. Jonathon, Johnny, Weathersby was 14-years-old.
He battled bone cancer, Osteosarcoma, since May 2014. Family friend, Kristen Sheppard, says Johnny was surrounded by family and friends in his last moments. In an official Facebook page called “Fight for Johnny” a post read, “Our sweet boy is in heaven, he fought until the end, and is now an angel, bless you my son!”
There are no funeral or service details yet. Sheppard says on behalf of the family they are grateful for Yuma’s support and to honor Johnny’s memory and celebrate life.
