The Story

Julie’s Story

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 womens 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.
Jeremiah 29:11

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.
Phil 4:13

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.
Matthew 21:22

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.
Galatians 6:2

Hello to all who have donated to this fund to help Julie beat cancer!

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. She has completed all the rounds of chemotherapy, has had her bilateral mastectomy and is on the road to recovery. The pathology reports came back with VERY good news.. 100 percent cancer free! She kicked it.. And YOU helped! Shestill has 6 1/2 weeks of radiation treaments and then will have a final surgery in December to complete reconstruction. But the worst is over! :)

At each hospital and doctor visit, I have witnessed Julie pulling out her "Breast Cancer" bank card and guarantee it has been used only as a resource to relieve the burden of the finances involved with cancer. I couldn't believe how much some of the shots and prescriptions cost! Your generous donations, loving comments and prayers have truly been a source of comfort. The donations you have provided have helped her to have the best possible care and have helped tremendously during this journey. It also has been such a blessing to know there were so many friends....old and new..pulling and praying for our Julie!

The team of doctors and nurses at Texas Oncology and Sammons Center at Baylor Hospital in Dallas have been excellent! They have been extremely thoughtful about her treatment and procedures and will continue to monitor her health.

Please know we go forward feeling blessed to have your love and kindness and will "pay it forward". Prayers. Strength. Healing. And keep believing in Miracles... They DO happen! 
Thank you so very much!
Ann, Julie and Family

Prayers. Strength. Healing. Miracles .

Thoughts from Ann  (Julie’s mom)
As we are approaching the countdown to Thanksgiving, please know that our family and Julie are so very thankful for YOU. My heart is so touched when I see the list of names of numerous friends, neighbors, family members and the kind souls who do not even know Julie, who have blessed her with your countless generous donations and words of strength. The hopeful messages and encouraging words written by you on this website are just wonderful. Julie is so blessed to have such love and grace filling her heart as she continues to fight breast cancer! She is doing quite well and I am so proud of her poise, confidence, positive attitude... and also for keeping her sense of humor. We have all had our weak moments, but overall our family is strong and standing by Julie every step of the way. Chemo number four is this Wednesday... the chemo half way mark! We are continually blessed to have the doctors and nurses leading the path with their intellect and compassion. There are too many of you to send individual thank you notes, but please know we all thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

May each of you enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving with your families.
