January 2020: Please note that due to Julia's declining state, we have lowered the GoFundMe amount to show 'completed'. We appreciate everyone's extreme generosity over this past year. Thank you so very much.
Original: The very day after Amy's father lost his fight to cancer, Amy and her husband received the devastating news that her daughter Julia has Clival Chordoma - an extremely rare and deadly form of childhood bone/brain cancer.
There are so few ways we can help a family facing these overwhelming circumstances. One thing we can do is allow them to focus on their time with Julia, and not whether or not they'll end up losing their home.
That's the purpose of this campaign--to help with all of the expenses that go along with caring for a young child with cancer. Amy and Reed are doing what they can to ensure they're both still able to work as much as possible, but they're spending a huge amount of money on alternative treatments, transportation, and childcare for their young son, Gabriel. They're also trying to ensure they're in a position, financially, for one of them to quit and care for Julia full-time should she beat the odds and come home with any sort of health issues or disabilities.
Thank you so much for all of your support.

January 2020: Thank you so much for your generosity over this past year. Our fundraisers are still running, for those who would like 'Julia swag;, but our financial needs have been met for the near future, and we wanted to make that clear before anyone donates. Thank you so much <3
