Hi, I’m Julia…

I’m 8 years old. I live in San Diego, California and I have a brother, Trevor (age 16). I love to play with “girly” LEGO toys and I love drawing and dancing. We are an artistic family. My dad is a full time musician so I get to perform with him often. One time Miley Cyrus visited the hospital and instead of entertaining me, I actually sang to her (it made her cry). I want to be an actress and a singer when I grow up.

At age 6, I was diagnosed with stage 4 high risk neuroblastoma.

As a Candlelighters NYC kid, my favorite experiences include performing at the Hero Celebration and watching Beauty and the Beast at the movie theater. I’m also looking forward to the next 4th of July in NYC! My parents say they love that we get to feel like we have family in NYC. Barbara and the volunteers provide a special support that delivers smiles, hugs and much needed love and support.

…And my family uses these words to describe Candlelighters NYC: Resourceful, fun, helpful, comforting, family
