Resident Blessed by Secret Samaritan Program


The Secret Samaritan program of Price has once again blessed a community member in need. The recipient was Rachel Johnson, who is a single mother of a young boy and a hair stylist who has made many friends through work, building lasting relationships with several of her clients. In early 2023, it was discovered that Johnson had a tumor in her eye. She underwent months of chemotherapy treatments and tests, though the tumor continued to rapidly grow.

In the latter half of 2023, Johnson had surgery to have her eye, and the subsequent tumor, removed. Further complications led to a corrective surgery following the initial one, though there were again complications that prompted a third surgery. At this time, the next steps for treatment are unsure.

Though experiencing these major life changes, Johnson continued working to provide for her son. She has been out of work for quite some time now due to the surgeries and complications.

Wishing to assist this individual, the Secret Samaritan program was able to provide her with gift cards to Walmart with a significant amount of funds available on them.
