PETER JOHNSON, JR.: Come Home -- My Message to a Frightened Boy Refusing Treatment for Hodgkin's Disease

As seen on "FOX Friends" on Thursday, May 21.


I have a compelling interest in this story. My compelling interest is that I know of an 18-year-old boy who went through this experience, who had basically the same disease and was treated with basically the same chemotherapy and he went on to become a trial lawyer, an appellate lawyer and a FOX News legal analyst... [foxvideo 5220792] STEVE DOOCY, CO-HOST, "FOX FRIENDS":And in fact, YOU are that 18-year-old boy who had cancer...

JOHNSON: ...that's me. I went through this. So what I'm saying to this family, who is VERY afraId, who is VERY fearful at this time. Come home. Get the treatment. I'd love to talk to young Master Hauser about what he's going through here, in this case. And to let him know that he in fact can be cured. And I am living proof of it.

DOOCY: Sure.

JOHNSON: And so, call the FOX News Channel. I'd be delighted to speak with you. I'll come with you. I'll meet with you. I'll tell you that, yeah, you'll get sick during chemotherapy but you will live. And this is an important message that this family has to understand. The authorities will forgive you. The authorities will forgive your mother. Come home. Come back to Minnesota, get the treatment at the Mayo Clinic or University of Minnesota or any of the great doctors that you have there. You will be cured.
