How do you fit a lifetime of love into 10 months? 3-year-old Julianne Marie Miller was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor on February 14, 2010. Thus began an incredible journey of love, compassion, inspiration and heartache, in which the strength, endurance, patience and love that lies within a 3-year old girl is revealed to all those whose lives she touched.
Julianne's Journey is a mother's memoir, kept in journal form, chronicaling the journey of Julianne Miller and her family as they battle childhood cancer from the onset of diagnosis of Pontine Brainstem Glioma until after Julianne's death on the morning of Christmas Eve 2010. The pages are filled with heartache, hope, inspiration and examples of Julianne's love for her family and friends and her absolute unwillingness to let this disease define who she was. She was determined to live the life of a 4-year-old little girl, going to preschool, visiting the museum, having play dates with her friends and, most of all, being with her family who she loved very very much. Julianne was a very wise very old soul who continues to be an inspiration and an example to all those who loved her, who knew her, and even to those who never even met her.
