This girl right here…she has stolen my heart. My sweet little friend. She told me the other day that I was family now. Yes Julia, I’m not going anywhere, I can promise you that. Julia turned 9 this week, and we have been working on so many special surprises for her. We couldn’t wait to SHOWER this amazing family with a ton of love!
As you may remember this sweet girl had an amazing evening at the Washington Ballet watching Misty Copeland a few months ago. Well we were JUST getting started!! Julia will be spending about 6 weeks at Children’s Hospital in Philadelphia (CHOP) this summer for radiation treatments, so we thought, what better way to celebrate her then making sure she has some fun while she is there, and also some fun here at home too! Thanks to our supporters, we were able to give Julia a “Big girl” work space for her room, music goodies like a karaoke machine and supplies to write her own music, a complete “what to do while at CHOP” package with books, games, and more, money to help the family with their travel expenses associated with being gone for 6 weeks AND best of all a weekend stay at Hershey Lodge and passes for Chocolate World and Hershey Park!! Some very wonderful people in Hershey, PA made all of that possible!
Also, SJGF would like to give a big shout out to our friends at:
The Lasley Centre for the Performing Arts for VIP seats & backstage passes at their 2015 Nutcracker, and also free ballet lessons for Julia!
