Lacuna Loft is excited to continue introducing more young adult voices! These great folks represent a variety of perspectives on the myriad of topics covered here at Lacuna Loft. Before everyone starts really getting into the nitty-gritty of all they have to say, we wanted to introduce them a bit. Without further ado, here is Tameka!

Tameka Johnson was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma (bone cancer) at the age of 13. She had been in remission for over 20 years when she was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer at the age of 31. She is a single mother to an intelligent 8 year old little girl.

Her experiences with cancer have taught her a lot about life and has allowed her to meet great people along the way. It is her goal is to advocate, educate, mentor, and support those fighting childhood or breast cancer. She wants to show the world that she not built to break no matter what life throws her way!
