Julie, the daughter I never had, the loving wife of my son, Garret, and mother of my adored 5-year-old twin grandsons, was diagnosed in May 2017 with stage 4 colorectal cancer. The disease has spread to her cervix and areas around her liver and right lung. This is especially shocking due to her age - just 33,  very active, and incredibly healthy!  She recognized that something was wrong, did all the right things by checking with doctors, having the right tests done - and all of that came back "NORMAL"!  After 18+ months of trying to figure out why she didn't feel 'right' , THIS is what had been there all along!

This is the story of Julie's amazing strength! With updates on her upcoming battle and miraculous recovery, her need for your prayers and to honor her plea of, "DON'T CRY, I need you to HELP ME BE STRONG!"
