      Has anyone heard from Julie?  I don’t know whether to be worried about her, or not — this forum is no longer the active place it was just a year ago.

          I have not heard.  She is so dear to me.  I think of her often, but have not been able to find a way to reach her.  Given her last reports on her progression, I am very worried.  Maybe we can all send her our best love and vibes today!!!  les

            I was absolutely wondering the same thing, I’ve been lurking on here and actually tried to search the site the other day in case I missed any updates from Julie.  Celeste, I will send all the vibes and love and prayers and incantations etc that I can to the universe today.  I miss “hearing” her voice on the site.  I automatically think of Julie EVERY time I see a Silver Stream camper, which is often. Hugs, Jackie

              Thank you so much for posting this because I was thinking about her for months and check here frequently to see if she would post anything. I was hoping that Celeste would have some news and I am so sad to hear that she does not.

              Julie we miss you!

                Julie is a gem.  Hope she responds.  Would like to know too.  Last time I recall she posted, she was off on an adventure in her camper after a bit of a setback in her treatment.

                  I haven’t heard from Julie. But I do know Julie’s “Rock Star” is no longer a practicing Oncologist. Her former Oncologist is now a Chief Medical Investigator for a large Pharma Company in Massachusetts. Julie put great trust in her “Rock Star” oncologist and she must have been devastated when he stopped treating her. I have a very bad feeling about Julie because no matter how bad things got for her, she would always post an update. It saddens me that we have not heard from her. God Bless Julie!

                    Yes.  Our girl had taken a wonderful trip in her renovated camper and shared some great pics.  However, as best as I can recall and the best I can do with the limited search function of this site – I think this is her last post from September –

                      I too am so glad you posted this. I have been thinking about Julie for months and hoping we’d get some kind of update. Sending love to her wherever she is.

                        I’m sure I knew Julie’s last name once upon a time, but alas, the senior moments are becoming more frequent.  Anyone remember?

                              I am a stage 4 melanoma survivor. I just had my annual scans last week. I am very blessed and  remain cancer free 9+ years. A few years ago, Julie and did email each other. Julie’s last name is GREEN. Unfortunately, I lost contact with her, so I have no update on Julie. However, yesterday I found an old email from Julie, so I emailed her. However, I have not received an email back. I will post again if Julie contacts me and will let you know how she is doing.

                                Gosh yes, it has been a while. I have always loved her posts. I am hoping that maybe she is out there enjoying life? Love and prayers and good vibes etc headed out to SOCAL.

                                  I received an email back from Julie’s work colleague. It saddens me to tell you that Julie passed on October 10, 2020. Julie was very special and will be missed tremendously. God Bless her!

                                      Thank you so much for finding out! Although the news saddens me beyond words, it reminds me that we are here only for a very short time. Julie was such a special person who touched the lives of so many. I will never forget her kind words and the beautiful pictures of her very last trip which she enjoyed enormously!!! I am so saddened but I pray that she is in a better place, looking over us. We miss you Julie!

                                        Thanks for sharing, Cat.  I am filled with tears as well as smiles, because Julie’s light was bright enough to be seen even in times of darkness.  Her light will continue to show the way for all of us who hold her in our heart.  Love to you all, les

                                          Hello Susan,

                                          Thank you for your message. I’m sad to say that Julie is no longer with us. She passed away last October.

                                          Yours sincerely,
