Julie Willing's family needs help

In September, our wonderful friend Julie Willing - amazing mother, wife, friend, artist, community activist, and so much more - was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. Julie gave it a tremendous fight, but passed away on November 7th after just two months of intensive treatment and multiple lengthy stays in the hospital.

As she was between jobs when this all started, she was also without health insurance and Tim's income was greatly reduced due to all the missed work while she was at the hospital. Her family still has significant medical and memorial-related expenses that are difficult to cover at this time while they struggle to hold onto their family home without Julie's income. We have created this campaign to reach out to her community to ask for support for our dear friends (Julie's husband, Tim, and their daughter, Siobhan) while they deal with this unimaginable loss. Together, we can help alleviate some of the extreme stress that money woes can add in these rough times. Thanks in advance to all who are sending good thoughts, prayers, and/or a few bucks. No gift is too small and all gifts are greatly appreciated.

Lastly, the family would love any Julie stories, memories, photos, etc. that you might be able to share. Feel free to post them on Julie's facebook page or email them directly to Tim at [email redacted]. A memorial for Julie is being planned for this coming spring and we'll keep you posted on the details once we know more.
