The Chicago Tribune reports West Chicago Community High School student, John Bangert is feeling the love from his local community. 

John was playing basketball when he noticed a blur in his vision, next thing you know, the doctor said he had Leber’s hereditary optic neuropathy, which leads to blindness. 

He took the positive route and started to plan a bucket list to see everything he could ever dream of with the help of a Go Fund Me Page.

John has already made a trip to California to see the beach and mountains, sat courtside at a Bulls game and water skiied. The donations are flooding in reaching $36,000 as of today. 

It's amazing to see how quickly a community can get together!
