Young mother w/Cancer - Please help!


A young mother needs your help!  Julie has had a very troubling year, battling Hodgkin lymphoma and chemo treatments for over 8 months.   My little sister Julie is married & has a two year old son.  Unfortunately she is unable to celebrate her mid-twenties like most, due to a sad turn of events.  Just a week after all her treatments were complete and she was "supposed" to be cancer free, Julie and her Husband Shawn had a meeting with her doctor to talk about a Stem-cell treatment which would help stave off any future attacks.  However during that meeting she felt a pain in her side, and had trouble breathing.  After the doctor investigated to his surprise he discovered two more nodes had grown near her lungs in a remarkably short time frame.  

Julie and her husband are really worried, and lack the funds to take the correct steps to get all of this cleared up. All she wants is to go back to her family with a clean bill of health and to enjoy her twenties again.  The doctor is recommending a new FDA approved cancer treatment (SGN-35) that is not covered by insurance, and costs well over 150k.  That is in addition to the Stem-cell treatment which takes upwards of a month in the hospital we are told. She has a long road ahead and for the first time I am reaching out to everyone I know for help.  If you would please find it in your heart, and donate as much as you can spare for Julie's treatments, she and her family would be so grateful.  I thank you for your time, and for any contribution you share for her cure.

Julie has direct and only access to all proceeds  so that she can use them to cover her medical expenses.

Julie is also an Artist,  and if you wish to purchase any of her paintings, please visit her site, ( this will help lift her spirits and contribute to her cause.

Thank you!
