MAYWOOD, N.J. — Nearly $27,000 had been raised as of Monday evening on a GoFundMe campaign launched by a Maywood aunt in support of a Maywood teen battling cystic fibrosis.

Jonathan Mechan, 15, is in the hospital every month for two to three weeks — sometimes longer.

He recently chose to follow his dream and get evaluated for a lung transplant.

"Yeah I can get rejected for something but I don't look at it like that," the teen wrote.

"I'm thinking positive not negative. "I'm doing this to show people not to give up — all you need is hope and faith, and don't let it get to you.

"Maybe one day your dream might come true."
