Thank you for the outpouring support for our sister and family.  As you know, or may have heard, our sister, Julia, sustained a subarachnoid hemorrhage from a burst aneurysm a few days after Thanksgiving.  Julia underwent brain surgery to clip the aneurysm and has been in the neuroscience ICU at Brigham and Women's Hospital since.  Your messages, letters, and love have made her smile even through her roughest of days.

Many of you have reached out to ask where you can donate or how you can help Julia on her road to recovery.  As many friends and family are not local, and can’t attend the January 19th fundraiser, we created this page for Julia. Those of you who know Julia are probably aware of her commitment to a healthy lifestyle. What you may not know is that earlier this year Julia created an Instagram account she coined “Zestful living” in the hopes of bringing awareness to the importance of eating well, and promoting a long and healthy life. “Zestful living” is a wonderful representation of her spirit, and her commitment to health for herself and others. With this positive creed in mind we ask you to help us bring the zest back to Julia’s life, and our family is so grateful for all of the support and love we have received.


Love, 
Julia's Worker Bees

Thank you again for the continued outpouring of love, kindness and support. As many of you know Julia was able to be home in time for Christmas, which was the best present EVER! Julia continues to make remarkable improvements that have all of her healthcare providers in awe, and us as well.

A heartfelt thank you to South Shore Anesthesia for the wonderful event in Julia’s honor Saturday evening…. the venue was perfect and the raffles were beyond impressive and great fun! What a beautiful evening filled with love, laughter and celebration of life. It was wonderful to meet so many of Julia’s colleagues. Thank you to the BWH Neuroscience ICU RNs who cared for Julia and came to the event. It was wonderful for all of us to be able to reconnect and celebrate Julia’s return to health!

A Brief update to share:

This week we celebrated Julia’s 31st birthday in the neuroscience ICU at BWH. While her birthday last year was very different than her current celebration, she still found many moments to smile. We have been sharing and re reading your cards and messages to Julia, and they light up her life!

We are all so thankful for where she is today. The last 3 weeks in the hospital have been a whirlwind with her surgery and many additional tests and procedures all with a goal to get her healthy. We are so thankful for all of the support shared with Julia.

Love,
Julia’s Worker Bees
