Julia is a sweet teenager who loves hanging out with her sisters and friends. Her favorite subjects in school are science and geology, and her favorite movie is Forrest Gump. She collects fuzzy posters and she longs to go on a cruise with her family.
At the start of this year, Julia found a lump on the side of her throat and went to the doctor. Tests showed that she had a rare type of thyroid cancer called medullary thyroid cancer. The tumor has completely encased her trachea and esophagus and also extends to the upper part of her left lung and around her carotid artery. Because of the location of the tumor, surgeons will be unable to remove all of it without removing her trachea and esophagus as well. Julia also suffers from multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2 B, which is another type of cancer that coexists with medullary thyroid cancer. For this condition, Julia has endured a number of surgeries on her hips and legs, as well as a recent surgery to correct a curvature of the spine called scoliosis.
For her wish, Julia just wants to escape on a tropical cruise getaway. Make sure to pack your sunglasses, Julia, because your wish is about to come true!
