All proceeds from the IfOnly sweepstakes benefit the Charlotte and Gwenyth Gray Foundation to cure Batten Disease. Johnson has been an ardent supporter of the foundation that was started by Hollywood producer Gordon Gray and his wife Kristen after their two young daughters were diagnosed with the extremely rare degenerative brain disorder.
For nearly a year, the Gray family has been in a race against time to fund research for a cure for the disorder that causes blindness, seizures, personality and behavioral changes, dementia and the loss of motor skills and the ability to communicate. Children with the Grays’ particular mutation of Batten die between the ages of 6 and 12.
“This charity is near to my heart,” Johnson wrote on Instagram. “The daddy of these two beautiful little girls (Charlotte & Gweneth) is a very good friend of mine. Let’s get you out to our #BAYWATCH set, have some fun and help out some children in desperate need.”
