The American Cancer Society on behalf of Team Josie.
Josie Greenwood is a sweet little girl who died of Leukemia in 2007 at the age of three. JosiesHope.org is this website, created and maintained by her family, as a multi-purpose gathering place for sharing Josie’s story, creating awareness about childhood cancer, and raising funds in the fight against cancer.
Josie’s Hope is an unofficial fundraising organization started by Josie’s family in Grand Forks, North Dakota. We are currently raising funds for The American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life 2012. Team Josie originated with the 2008 Relay For Life event in Grand Forks, North Dakota, and we continue to celebrate and participate in this wonderful annual event. You can learn more about Team Josie by clicking here.
Over the past several years, many people have responded to Josie’s story with tremendous acts of kindness and inspiration. Our friend Kristen Abner has run several marathons in Josie’s name as part of The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training, which has in turn inspired Josie’s aunt Karen Leinberger, and as you will see, many others, to similar acts of heroism.
As a family, we still dearly miss our little Josie. We continue to struggle with her loss on a daily basis, and we know we are only beginning to process the absolute shock and sadness that struck us several years ago. We question our spiritual faith in life, as well as the makeup of our physical environment. Our hope is that through our work here, with Josie’s Hope, with The American Cancer Society, with The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, and with the help of our family and friends, we can heal ourselves and make a difference in the lives of those affiliated with childhood suffering.
