Today one of my best friends got the news that no parent EVER wants to hear, that her daughter, the sweetest and most caring child I've ever known, has Leukemia. Everything is so new that we are not sure how advanced, or what the exact type is, but we do know that is is aggressive enough that they started her with blood transfusions and chemotherapy. Her mom, Juana has been dealt her fair share of trials and tribulations in life, and has never given up or stopped fighting for her kids. She is an amazing mom, and is doing the best she can with what she has. Her children are so kind, and humble and appreciate everything in life. Juliana is the type of child to run and hug you as soon as she sees you, even if she just met you, she's smart, and always so polite. Most of all she is BRAVE. Juliana is going through difficult times right now, but still smiles and says she's going to be ok, and she's not scared! I believe that all of these traits were passed down from her mom. Juana will do what ever it takes to make sure her kids are ok, and will not ask for help or hand outs, and today, in this moment, I want to do something for her, the person who has been there for all of us in our darkest hours, who has opened her home to many, given her last dollar to make sure someone else could eat, most importantly, she's been there. Now it's time for us to come together and let her focus on Juliana. My goal is to be able to raise enough money to where she doesn't have to leave Juliana's side at all. Right now, her life may be at a standstill focusing on getting Julie better, but unfortunately, life does not pause for anyone. Juana has two other children, Tatiana, who requires a little more than others, was born with Cerebral palsy and is unable to walk unassisted. Joshua, who is 7 is a crazy little boy who is currently the man of the house. I would like for her not to worry about having to go back to work anytime soon so she can be there with Julie while she fights this battle. I don't want Juana to feel like she HAS to leave to go to work because the fear of not being able to pay a bill, or paying for child care if needed, losing her home or car, or even the many, many bills that will start coming in from Juliana's treatments. I want her to focus on getting Juliana better. So I am asking if you would give up your morning coffee at Starbucks, and donate $1,$5 or anything you can, anything at all. Every penny will help. And I know that Times are not the best for everyone, so if you can't help financially, can you please share this campaign? But most importantly, keep Juliana and her entire family in your prayers while they fight this battle. Thank you for taking the time to read this, god bless!

Great News everyone! Miss Juliana was able to come home yesterday! She is very happy to be home, and is very excited to see all of your love and support from all over the world! Because Julianas immune system is so delicate, we ask that if you would like to Visit and have been sick in the past 72 hours or have been around anyone who has been sick, to please wait. Juliana is very fragile right now and the littlest virus can be detrimental to her. If you want to video chat, or FaceTime that would be ok! We all want Juliana to get better, so please, if you are or have been sick, no visits right now. I'm sure she would love to see everyone, but we have to do what's best for her! Please keep sending positive vibes and prayers her way! Thank you everyone!
