THE STORY:

Teekay Shipping is fundraising for Wish Kid Julia. Help us grant her most heartfelt wish.

Julia is a happy and positive nine-year-old girl, in the words of her mother, Rachel, “Julia is a force!”

In December 2014, Julia began sleeping more than usual and complaining of sore legs. At first her family just thought she was overdoing it in soccer, but in January Julia said she was too tired to have a party for her 8th birthday, and they knew something was wrong. Bruises started appearing so they took her to the family doctor. “We found out the next day, after a bone marrow aspiration, that our little eight-year-old girl had ALL - Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia,” says Rachel.

The family tried their best to make Julia’s cancer and treatment just a part of their lives, and not their whole lives. They tried their best so that Julia and her little sister Summer saw the positive side of everything: the treatment plan to get better and the family getting stronger to conquer this together.

Julia’s head nurse, Suzanne Horn, referred Julia to The Children’s Wish
Foundation of Canada for her most heartfelt wish. Julia is looking forward to taking her wish after she is finished her treatment, as a way of celebrating the transition to being ‘free’ from cancer in May 2017.
Still, Julia is doing well now as she enters the maintenance phase of her treatment.

Looking at her, you would never guess she was being treated for cancer. She is back at school, having playdates again and back to playing soccer. She still has a regimen of daily at home chemo (pill form), once a month hospital chemo (followed by a few rough nauseous days) and once every three month lumbar puncture (needle in the spine). She is looking forward to meeting everyone at Teekay Shipping and kicking butt at Exile Island 2016!
