This might be one of my favorite blog post. I met Julia a few months ago at Arkansas Children’s Hospital where she was getting chemotherapy. She is 14. Fourteen. I can’t even imagine what it would be like to be in the middle of high school, when you are supposed to be worrying what you will wear to school, cheer practice and boys. Instead Julia is having to worry about much larger things like chemotherapy, radiation and probably the worst part: hair loss. She has told me many times how much of an inspiration I am to her. When in reality, she is who I aspire to be. She full of joy and always positive. We were texting this morning and she said “I could have never shaved my head if you hadn’t.” My heart melted and I got tears in my eyes. We are all one big cancer community who share a unique bond. I am so happy to call these girls friends. Meet Julia:
