Meet Julie ~~ she was diagnosed with GBM on December 3, 2006, underwent successful surgery and proceeded with chemo and radiation. She had clean MRI's for one (1) year. Shortly before Christmas in 2007 she began having symptoms again and was diagnosed with another tumor on December 27, 2007. She went to her heavenly home 41 days later. She fought a hard battle, was always positive and always kept her contagious smile. Julie loved her family dearly, she grew in her Christian faith, she became a better teacher, she sought to inspire her family, her friends and her students. She continues to inspire others to this very day.
This year is the fourteenth (14th) year our team, Jogging for Julie, has participated in Angels Among Us. It has become our mission to raise money for continued research through this 5K and Family Fun Walk. We run and walk so those affected can have the opportunity to live a more normal life through the new research that is found through the dollars we raise.
Please join our team or make a donation of love and hope for those who have been forced into the "brain tumor world". We'd love for you to join the team, donate online or write a check to Duke University - Angels 223BT with Jogging for Julie on the memo line and mail it to Duke University - Angels Among Us, DUMC Box 3624, Durham, NC 27710.....no amount is too small.
Our love to you all and may God bless each of you.
With a grateful heart,
Julie's family and friends.
