Help Julia Knock Out Breast Cancer

If you asked me to describe my cousin Julia, I would say she's one tough cookie. She's a hard worker, a loyal friend, and would do anything for those closest to her, but there's another side of her that makes her even more wonderful. She can laugh and smile in the face of adversity.

On April 11, 2017, Julia under went surgery to have a benign brain tumor removed that her doctors had been watching for years and had gotten to the point where it was a daily discomfort. The surgery was successful and Julia soon began to recover and heal - all the while encouraged by the support of her friends and family.

Less than a month later, Julia went in for her yearly mammogram and received a lobular breast cancer diagnosis days later. In an effort to prevent the cancer from spreading, Julia was brought in for a double mastectomy on May 31st.

Today, Julia's incisions are healed and is now going through 4-5 rounds of chemotherapy. Because of her limited ability to work, and her multiple surgeries, she has been getting calls regarding bills from the hospital and the anesthesiologist, all while undergoing chemotherapy. Your donations and support will help settle these hospital bills and allow Julia to focus on healing and coping with her treatment.

Please consider making even the smallest donation - every little bit counts and together we can help Julia knock out cancer.

Thank you to everyone for your love and support. More importantly, please keep Julia in your prayers.
