This January, just a few months after her 40th birthday, Julie was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer. The cancer is quite advanced and has spread to her lymph nodes, which means she has a gruelling 6 months of chemotherapy and surgery ahead of her.
With her beautiful daughter, Cicely, just about to turn 2, Julie’s biggest anxiety is not being able to be the mom that her little girl needs. Nick and Julie need some financial help. This will allow Julie to stop working and Nick can reduce his long hours as a chef in order to care for both Julie and Cicely during and after her treatments. Julie's goal throughout her treatment process is to keep a positive healthy environment for her family and to make life as normal as it was for Cicely before her diagnosis.
We know that Nick and Julie have a big worldwide network and there are lots of people wondering what they can do to help from many miles away. Here is what you can do. The money we raise here will enable the family to spend more time together during this fight. It will help with childcare, cover lost wages and allow Julie to focus her energy into beating cancer and being the amazing mother and wife that she has always been.
It has taken some time to convince our dear friends that it’s ok to ask for help and sometimes all you need to do is put it out there and let the world show you its kindness.
