Feeling the Love

Hanging on Every Word…

“The first time I met and heard Julie speak was at the Saskatchewan Hospice Palliative Care Association Conference in Regina. She had the whole room hanging on her every word as she spoke of her lived experience as a parent of a child with a medical fragility. She was generous in sharing her hard-fought nuggets of wisdom through touching anecdotes, practical tips and wry humour. Equal parts tender, touching, no-nonsense and tough, she engaged and connected a room full of esteemed medical professionals at the heart level.” 

~ Karla Combres, conference attendee
