My Story

Josie is a very sweet little girl who enjoys playing with her brother and friends. She loves reading and drawing. When she was only 1 year and 9 months old, Josie was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. A few bruises and fatigue turned out to be caused by a horrible disease. Our world fell apart that day. It amazes everyone who meets Josie how well she handles the intense Chemotherapy treatment that she is undergoing. She still kept her good spirits and temper. She still has quite a long road ahead of her. Once active treatment is over in October, she still has many doctor visits and 5 more years to go until she'll be declared "cured". Please support cancer research by sponsoring Tim on shaving his head. It's the best cause and it gives our daughter and so many others a chance to live.
