Love and Hope for Julia Ortiz


On behalf of our beautiful friend, Julia Ortiz!❤️

Julia is an exceptional woman so full of life, love and charisma. On the night of October 14, our beloved friend was found unconscious in her home. She  suffered from an aneurysm that ruptured and caused significant brain damage. She has undergone numerous surgeries but has shown little progress. We have HOPE that she will recover. 

At this time, we do not know the outcome and how much damage has been done to her brain. Right now she needs time to heal and then recover.  

As many of you know, Julia is a family woman, wonderful friend,  extremely funny, and quite the storyteller.  She is a pillar in the the community. She even dubbed herself “the unofficial tour guide of Springfield, MA.” Julia makes a huge impact on everyone she meets. She is a cheerful spirited woman with a friendly smile and a big heart.  She lives for her family, friends, the community and education. 

We ask that you please consider supporting Julia and her family by donating and sharing this page. 

We are asking for immediate assistance with paying her mortgage and expenses of the home as well as medical expenses. This fund will also help with hospital stays, transportation and food costs for her daughters as they travel back and forth to Worcester.

Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers and we thank you all. God bless! 

Please see information on Aneurysms!
