Julie Gargasz is a sweet and loving 4 year old resident of Huber Heights, Ohio. Julie and her twin sister Gabby were born in June of 2012. After Julie’s 1st birthday her parents noticed Julie's one eye shaking. After an MRI, Julie was diagnosed with a brain tumor. The lives of the Gargasz family were turned upside down. When Julie was accepted as a patient at St Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, she was put on 3 different kinds of Chemo immediately. They had to return every 8 weeks for about a year. Slowly her tumor shrunk and after 18 some months their oncologist at St. Jude decided to stop her chemo for a while to let her body rest. She was chemo free for about 2 years. The family recently found out that Julie now has to go through another 18 months of chemo. Please help us support Team Julie and St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital
