The Roots

Tameka Johnson, a retired Special Educator, mother of one, and blogger, was diagnosed with osteosarcoma at the age of 13.  Eighteen years into remission, she received the diagnosis stage II HER2-positive, estrogen receptor-positive breast cancer in 2013, at age 31. The disease remained in remission from 2013-2016 when her doctors confirmed that her cancer had metastasized to her left lung and collar bone.  After being diagnosed with osteosarcoma in 1994, Tameka knew that it would be her God-given purpose to share her story with the world.

Due to the progression of the disease in 2016, Tameka had to begin chemotherapy for another 4 months and is now stage IV. Currently, she receives treatment to maintain that stability of the disease. Although, she remains what the doctor calls stable her doctors have confirmed that the disease has traveled to her spine.

It was not until 2013 that Tameka began to share her life and story with others through her blog Evolving Soul; the spiritual, personal, and soul evolution of a young woman that is thriving despite her diagnosis and current battle with breast cancer. Tameka remains hopeful that a cure will soon be developed and that she will live a long and prosperous life with her daughter London.


In the early parts of her re-diagnosis, she realized she had to change her mind about Breast Cancer. She couldn’t be angry at it anymore, she had to learn to see life and things differently each day. She decided that she had to use cancer the way that it was using her. She had to make an example out it.


While cancer threatened to end her life, it’s renewed her and has given her a purpose to encourage and strengthen others. To get here, Tameka had to persevere and understand that there was something more significant to come through her battle and that something is her story. Through a combination of courage, faith, and personal evolution- Tameka uses her story to empower others while becoming the woman; God intends for her to be.

Perspective and Prosperity

Updated: Dec 12, 2019

2019 was the year of insight for me. I was truly able to recognize what God was doing in and around my life. I had experienced so much turmoil in the previous years but I understood that God had to prune me because I was to bear much fruit. I've said this many times before, we are not always waiting on God but God is waiting on us. A few years ago, I was dealing with someone who God told me wasn't ready for the next level of our relationship. So, I was forced to let that person go and I moved on with my life. Three years later we reconnected. My life is different at this point, I had been re-diagnosed and I was moving in a different direction. I was trusting God in ways that I had not ever imagined and peace was permeating every aspect of my life. A year into our re-connection and everything was great! Baecations, dates, finding and furnishing his new house and blending our families. Because there was history between us and some things happened in the past that I could say that I'm not so proud of, I understood that there was always going to be someone or something that would interfere with what we were building. And that day came. Our peace was disrupted and what we were building was at stake. What I came to realize was that he still wasn't ready and I was no longer that person that was willing to allow other people and their nonsense to disturb the peace that I had fought so hard to have. While it hurt me to walk away from someone that I had loved beyond this lifetime, it was good that I was afflicted. It is not always about us being ready for "it" but "it" being ready for us. I have no hard feelings because EVERYTHING works together for my good and God wouldn't have it any other way.

2020 is going to be the year of perspective and prosperity, I can feel it and see it. I've been on a mission to heal the broken places within me so that my hearts desires can manifest. I'm grateful for the pruning and the hardships because it is in those very moments that I have been developed. No matter what I have been through, I have lacked nothing! God is a God of hope, love, joy, peace, forgiveness, abundance and so much more.

I pray that your 2019 was a year of insight for you and that your 2020 brings you nothing but great things!

With Love,

T
