The Logan City Police Department is celebrating this week after one of their officers beat breast cancer.
In October of 2018, Officer Johnson was hired by the agency.
According to a Facebook post by the department, "she was so excited to be a part of the Logan City law enforcement family."
But, right before her graduation from the police academy, Johnson got some bad news: she had an aggressive form of breast cancer.
Instead of starting her new career, she went through chemotherapy, radiation and multiple surgeries for more than a year.
"During all of this, she continued to be a wife, mother and came to work with unparalleled positivity," the post stated. "She maintained this attitude during every visit we made to her during chemo, while recovering from surgeries and in the office as she continued to work through this illness."
After 18 months, Johnson received some good news: the cancer is gone and she can return to work.
The police department concluded its post about Johnson with this statement:
As a collective Logan City Police family, we are so proud of her...Take a lesson from Officer Johnson in these current times, persevere, be positive in the face of adversity, get through it, it can be done, and we will make it through tough things. Congratulations Officer Johnson
