Meet Julia….a beautiful little two year old with a terrible disease.
Julia was diagnosed with leukemia last October. She is considered very high risk and has to go through very intense chemotherapy and radiation. Her treatment plan is projected to be about two years assuming she has no setbacks. In the first three months of Julia’s treatment plan, she was hospitalized and spent a total of seven days at home. Julia’s mom has been caring for her and running back and forth between Welland and McMaster Hospital. Her employer has been very generous, granting her a paid leave but, unfortunately, that has run out.
Due to the financial stress the family is going through on top of the stress of what Julia is going through, their family and friends organized a fundraiser for Julia. A silent auction gala is being held on April 4th and I’ve received word that it is SOLD OUT!!!
So this is where I come in. I received an email with Julia’s story. I immediately donated a photo session with prints to the silent auction along with a photo session for Julia and her brothers. This is the beauty of being a photographer. I have a gift that I can give – the gift of photographs and capturing time and it was my absolute pleasure capturing Julia and her brothers!
If you would like to make a donation, a paypal account has been set up: Julia’s Journey
