“My advice to others is to do your research, know your options, and gather as much information as you are able. Do not settle for treatment, or a physician, or anything you are not sure about. Be your own advocate! If you don’t know, ask! Pray for peace with the decision making (and the waiting)… you WILL know when it’s right. Surround yourself with people who love you and support you. Get involved! Helping others is a great way to learn and grow (and even help yourself along the way). There is a whole community of us survivors out there living STRONG!” Julia said.
