I am new here and didn’t know Julie but I have been reading her blog. I am sad. I am grateful. I am angry. I am hopeful. I am overwhelmed with information. I am touched by the human kindness I have seen. I am bolstered by the courage of so many others. I am forever changed, like every cancer patient and caregiver is. One day you are “innocent” and the next day your life will never be like it was.
