Deputy Johnathan Berry is currently battling cancer for the 2nd time in less than a year. On November 1, 2019, Johnathan and his mother, Elizabeth, met with doctors at UAB hopeful to come up with a plan to surgically remove the two malignant lymph nodes. Sadly, the news was not what they wanted to hear. Due to the location of one of the lymph nodes in his chest and the rarity of this particular type of cancer, doctors at UAB did not feel comfortable attempting the surgery and referred him to MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas.

They flew out a week later to meet with the cancer team to form a surgical plan. However, due to the aggressive, quick spreading nature of this cancer strain, doctors immediately admitted him into the hospital to start the 1st of 4 rounds of a very strenuous chemotherapy. The chemo cocktail Johnathan needs requires week-long hospitalization and cannot be administered here in Dothan. He'll need to travel to UAB and/or MD Anderson to receive each treatment and evaluations. The hope is that two, heavy-dosage rounds of chemo will shrink the lymph nodes enough to be removed surgically. If not, he'll need to go the full 4 rounds and then re-evaluate the plan.

From Deputy Berry:

This will be a very long road to recovery, but those of you who know me know that there is not one ounce of quit in me, and I will continue to fight and fight until I defeat the dreaded disease. Please continue to keep my family and myself in your prayers through this time and thank everyone who has already made the very sweet phone calls and text messages. Thank you so much.

We will be preselling tickets now through Sunday, Dec. 8th. Tickets are available to pick-up from Lt. Tony Turner, Sgt. Ricky Herring, or myself. I encourage everyone to set a personal goal of selling at least 5 butts a piece, however we have a total goal of 750. Spread the word! These will be ready just in time to enjoy for Christmas dinner!

Now let's sell some butts and raise some money to help make this journey a little easier on the entire Berry family!!

Please let me know if you have any questions!


Deputy Berry was with Geneva Police Department prior to coming to work with Houston County Sheriff Department.

After Deputy Berry went to work with Houston County Sheriff Department he got diagnosed with cancer.

Deputy Berry went through treatment and all was well. Then following a checkup the cancer was found again. 

The brothers and sisters in law enforcement are joining together raising money to help their brother in uniform.
