From her mom, Vanessa:
Julia was diagnosed with T1D on February 7, 2014 in DKA. In the ICU and unresponsive, she had the option to leave us. Ten years later, we are so grateful she is here and rooting for others in the T1D community everyday. Julia has never let T1D stop her. She is a competitive equestrian rider and loves to travel around the world. Julia is now a rising senior in high school hoping to go to Stanford in 2025! This picture is of Julia treating a low in the middle of nowhere Antartica in December 2023. We are so proud of her. She is our hero!
