Julia Watson Family Fund
Our beautiful, courageous, inspiring and brave friend Julia has put in a long, hard and arduous fight against stage 4 bowel cancer. Unfortunately her fight is now over and, all that can be done, has been done. Jules needs to rest now and spend her remaining days with her amazing husband Gary and their four gorgeous daughters.
But, she can't do this unless Gaz can be with her. And this can only happen if we, Julias' friends and loved ones take care of the rest so Gaz and their girls can be by Julia's side every moment they have left together.
Help us to take care of Gary and the girls so this very special family can be looked after while they spend their last moments with their beautiful wife and Mother.
Any donation is appreciated. Add up the cost of a loaf of bead and 2 ltr of milk. Donate that. Add up the cost of a family meal, and donate that. Anything is appreciated. We'll turn it into food, meals, school lunches, house cleaning and gardening, so Gary and his gorgeous girls won't have to worry about it.
Thank you to everyone who can donate. We know Julia will be so comforted knowing her family are being taken care of.
If you haven't followed Julia's blog, 'Five Fairies and a Fella', the link is below.
Julia knew her condition was terminal, but wanted more than anything for everyone to understand how important it is to step up, step out of your comfort zone and shine. Let your light be seen, and live each day of your life with passion and doing what makes you happy. In her honor and her memory, please do this for her.
Julia leaves behind four beautiful little fairies, aged 13, 11, 10 and 8 and her amazing 'Fella' Gaz. The youngest little Fairy, 8yo Georgia has Down syndrome and other complex care needs.
To everyone who has donated to help us reach this incredible total, we thank you so much. It allowed Gary who is self employed to take time off work to be by his beloved Julia's side in her final weeks. This was incredibly important to both of them as I'm sure you'd understand.
For now, the family are doing their best to keep going without their Mum but we know there will be many tough days ahead for them. We'll be keeping this Go Fund Me open for as long as we can as every donation made goes toward another day Gary can spend away from work and home with his girls.
We thank all of you who donated, shared and sent messages of love and support to Julia and her family in her final weeks . To update with such sad news isn't easy.
"Don't die with your light inside you. At least I know I won't." Julia Watson.
With love and thanks,
Julia is a fighter and has been battling stage 4 bowel cancer for almost three years. Almost three years to do the day. She gave it her best shot but the fight is now over.
In Julia's own words, "I did all I could".
Through her incredible blogging, her book, "Breakfast, School run, Chemo," and through her beautiful personality Julia has given us all so much, and for that we are so blessed. Now, it's our turn to do something for Julia. To give back to this beautiful person.
Through this fundraiser we can give Julia time with her amazing husband, Gary, who has been by her side every step of the way. Julia and Gary have four young children, four beautiful girls. Their youngest, Georgia has complex special needs. This fundraiser buys this family time together. Gary has been working. He needs to pay the bills. But more so than ever, he needs to be by Julia's side and not out at work. They need to be together.
This is what this fundraiser will give to this family. Time together. We thank each of you so very much for your donations. Every single one means so very much.
Thank you all.
Please please keep sharing and donating. This total might seem like a large amount, but when you're looking after a family of six, including a child with complex special needs, it won't go very far.
Every donation buys more time for this extraordinary family to spend together. Where they should be.
Sending LOVE and a little extra very soon. Know that you have inspired me to push on through hard times and are a light for so many people during the dark times. If only people could do half of what you do, we would see peace on Earth overnight. We are all here with you despite being so far away. xoxoxox
How is Julia please? I can't find y updates Thank you Sandra Colley
Wishing you Love + Hope + Strength dear Dakota, Indi, Montana, Georgie and Gaz, your beautiful Mum and Wife gave so much to so many, we can't imagine how hard it is for you to say goodby to her : ( hoping you can spend as much time together without having to worry about work and money and paying bills xo
R.I.P. Beautiful lady. Deepest and sincere condolences to Gary and his little fairies. You fought the most courageous and determined positive fight I have ever known. The words 'give up or give in' was never in your vocabulary. We all prayed so much to get you home from Christmas, just one chance to have that dream come true but it wasn't to be. You have a legacy that will never be forgotten. Fly high with your fairy wings.
Every little bit helps. Rest in peace beautiful angel and you will always be in our hearts
