Josie, The Cancer Fighting Superhero!
When we hear the word superhero, we often think of the fictional characters in movies and comic books. Now, when you hear it, you can think of Josie, the real life superhero. This 4-year-old from Missouri has a very special super power; fighting cancer!
At Josie's school, they participated in "Superhero Day" where kids were invited to dress up as a power yeilding hero. Josie didn't really have any costumes and her mom suggested she go as herself. She wore a cape and called herself "Super Josie" the destroyer of cancer. She was diagnosed with leukemia at age 2 and now in remission. She continues to fight her battle and is indeed a superhero!
Her slogan is, "Destroying cancer one day at a time." She is certainly an inspiration to all kids, and adults alike, who are fighting cancer. "She's a superhero to me," her mom told CBS News. "She's something -- she's really outgoing, she's not scared of anything in this world I don't think."
