Julien's Healing Fund

This summer, Julien slowly started to lose weight and energy, and in October noticed a small bulge in his abdomen. After initial examinations, a biopsy was performed. For a month and a half the results continued to come back inconclusive, and were sent to more specialized labs for analysis.

While waiting for the results, the mass in his abdomen tripled in size and was now obstructing kidney function. Julien was admitted to the hospital where a diagnosis was finally received: testicular cancer which had metastasized to the lymph nodes in his abdomen, chest and neck, with lesions also in his liver and lungs. 

After a week at the local hospital, his kidneys had stabilized, however, his case was seen as too risky to treat locally, so he was transferred to USC Norris Cancer Center in Los Angeles to be overseen by a specialized team.

Julien was in hospital for a second full week in Los Angeles, where some additional complications arose. However, the combined support of traditional medicine, holistic methods, energetic healing and prayer by family, friends and healers around the world had a positive impact. He successfully completed a five day treatment of chemotherapy at the hospital, and was discharged last weekend to continue treatments closer to home. Four rounds of chemotherapy are suggested, followed by surgery.

While being at home is more healing and less stressful than the hospital, the challenges of around-the-clock care are now apparent. Julien's wife Melissa has taken leave from work, accompanying him throughout his hospital stay and continuing to be his primary caregiver at home through his healing journey. 

We ask that you consider making a contribution to assist Julien in his recovery. The funds will be utilized to assist with the numerous medical bills and unforeseen expenses that have come their way during this time as well as the cost of alternative therapies to compliment Julien's current treatments.

Lastly, we invite you to take a minute or two each day to join us in unifying hearts and minds by holding a vision of wellness, happiness and thriving for Julien, and any others going through similar challenges. If you are a healer and feel called to include Julien in your remote healing work, please do. And if you know of any healing circles, please share this with them so that they may add Julien to their list.

With deep love and appreciation,
Julien Griffault & Melissa Navarro

Hello everyone,

We wanted to send a message with the latest regarding Julien's recovery.

Julien recently finished his second round of chemo. The following day he had a high fever and had to be admitted to the hospital for five days. He is now home and beginning to feel better.

According to the oncologist, the chemo program he is on is one of the most aggressive and Julien felt the effects of it this time around. Treatments are on hold until his immune system has had time to recover.

The good news is that the large tumors in his abdomen have greatly reduced in size, and the tube that was put in to support his kidney has been removed as the tumors are no longer pressing against it.

Julien is slowly regaining his strength and feeling positive about the rest of this journey. He sends his love and appreciation to all of you. Your prayers, love, donations and support have played a powerfully positive role in his recovery and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

With love,
Melissa + Julien

Dear friends and family,

On the first day of this new year, I wanted to reach out and thank you for your kindness, your words of encouragement and generosity. Your presence in our lives is truly a gift and we want you to know you are loved and greatly appreciated.

I am doing well. Due to stronger than expected side effects to the chemotherapy regimen, my treatments were postponed for a couple weeks, and will resume tomorrow. This welcome break has allowed me to rest more and strengthen, while continuing the alternative therapies I am on which have been showing promising results.

We will send you updates as the treatments continue and things evolve. Thanks to everyone's love and ongoing prayers I am in good spirits, staying positive and looking forward to what 2019 will bring.

Sending you lots of love and wishing you all a joyful and prosperous new year!
