At 28 years old, Julie has followed her heart and has a job doing what she loves. She is a producer and reporter for Fox Sports. She has worked with the Dallas Stars, Texas Rangers, Dallas Cowboys, and many other sports teams during her career. Ever since elementary school this is what Julie has always wanted to do, and now she is doing it. There are very few people in this world that have followed their heart into a career that they love. Her passion extends beyond her career. She has taken on the same love for tennis as her dad and participates in Dallas women’s leagues, playing in tournaments in her free time. Her energy for life and having fun is contagious. She is and always has been the life of the party. She is a beautiful woman with a beautiful heart and loves being with her family, friends, and boyfriend, Kelly.
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
On September 25, 2013 Julie was told the mind-numbing words that no one in the world should ever have to hear. She was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of cancer called Inflammatory Breast Cancer.
Julie is scheduled to begin chemotherapy at the start of October, which will continue over the next 4 months. Following chemotherapy, Julie will undergo a mastectomy and then radiation treatment. Julie is a strong and brave woman and will fight this with everything she has. It will be mentally and physically challenging, but with the prayers and support from her family and friends she will endure. She will continue with her career and live her normal life as much as her treatments allow, but her focus now will be on beating this terrible thing called cancer.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Many people ask how they can help.
The ultimate ask is for prayer. Please pray for the healing power of God to shine His light and hold His hands over Julie. That she can stay positive in the struggles ahead and that her cancer is fully cured. Pray that she has the support from her family, friends, coworkers, and everyone she needs to get through this time.
And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.
Over the next few months Julie will also face the financial burden of her treatments, hospital visits, and medications. There will be times Julie is unable to work as she recovers. She works freelance so this equates to no income. If it is in your heart to help Julie financially through this difficult time, you can make a donation on this site by clicking on the Give Now link above.
Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.
