I am Josie: a twenty-three year old graduate student and married to my one and only, Casey. I advocate for abused, abandoned, and neglected children for a living. I live, or should I say “lived,” a pretty simple life. I went to work and school, came home, and kick back with my husband and fur babies. My soul ambition has always been to accomplish something great, something in which I see to be greater than me, and that is to make a change in the lives of others. That was all I worked towards until November 14, 2016. I had to switch my focus on keeping myself alive and healthy because I would be no use sick or dead to anyone. Actually, that took a while to penetrate my brain because I am such stubborn person.

I want to document my physical and emotion journey, raw, and share it with the world. Years from now, I want to look back and say, “Thank God, I have come a long way,” hopefully in a positive way. At the age of 23, I never imagined writing about my clash with cancer, but when life gives you cancer, you fight it with your heart, mind, and soul and hope to crush it underneath your feet.

Prior to creating this blog page, i always had intentions to blog about things like my fitness journey and having a sound mind in this world. Things did take a turn when it did come time to create this blog, but I most certainly want to bring alive the very things that I wanted to blog about initially.

I hope that each and every one of you enjoy this blog as I walk through my journey.
