Making life easier for the Johnson Family-WJHG

JACKSON COUNTY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) A Jackson County family's life was changed Saturday, thanks to the assistance of the community, who came together to build a ramp to help make life for a young boy and his family a little bit easier. Three-year-old Bryson Johnson has seen some hard times in his short life. At seven-months-old, he suffered disabling injuries at the hands of his mother’s paramour, that left him wheelchair bound for the rest of his life. Since then, this young boy has been surrounded by the love and support of his family, and now, the community. "This is a community project,” says Jackson County Sheriff’s Investigator Cheree Edwards. “It takes the deputies, it takes the people that are here working, it takes LuAnne, and I know that it is what is going to be a blessing to them." "As a family advocate, we're here just to make our families happy and do whatever it is they need," explains Family Advocate, LuAnne Dean, with the Gulf Coast Children’s Advocacy Center. “They want this baby safe. They want him to stay in a safe place, and now we are here to do whatever it takes.
