Julia is a breast cancer survivor and author of “Breast Cancer-the notebook” a reference guide that provides a foundation of facts to the newly diagnosed, survivors or those wishing to take a preventative view from age 18 and up. Julia actively pursues health and wellness through running, cross-training, Pilates, and fueling her body with an organic vegetarian diet.
She finds joy and meaning as a patient advocate for those with breast cancer, interaction and support for widows, teaching exercise to the over eighty crowd and supporting orphans and foster children.
When Julia heard the words “breast cancer”, she began doing extensive research to “get her arms around” what she would have to deal with. Shortly thereafter, she traveled to MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston where she was met by a highly skilled team, who after several tests and analysis suggested a lumpectomy and sentinel node biopsy.
After her surgery, Julia took the road less traveled and opted not to have radiation or chemotherapy but instead implemented a plan of care consisting of wheat grass, juicing, super foods, a raw Vegan diet, prayer, exercise, and making her home environment as clean and green as possible.
Each day Julia would research everything she could find on breast cancer and the immune system. The result was notebooks filled with data that has now been transferred to her book, Breast Cancer-the Notebook—a compilation of easy to understand facts at the fingertips of the reader. Julia’s doctor, Merrick I. Ross, at MD Anderson Cancer Center, one of the top surgical oncologists in the country has endorsed this book and written the introduction.
Julia looks forward with great enthusiasm to the next phases of this project; taking the book global with multiple translations along with her special message of hope and encouragement, her vision to provide funding to those struggling to meet daily needs while trying to get well from breast cancer and her next book due out in 2010.
Julia has visited former First Lady Laura Bush’s team at the White House, appeared on Fox News with Dr. Manny Alvarez, The Drew Marshall Show Canada, NBC6 South Florida Today Show, WCBS880 AM NYC and Cable 12 Network. Her book has been featured in Vogue, Shape and Natural Health Magazines.
Julia has had numerous appearances at Fortune 500 companies, associations, churches, support groups, conferences, schools and sits on the advisory boards for The Annie Appleseed Project and The Pink Fund.
