Survivor Stories / Tributes

Julieanna Overton

Personal Description:


Julie lived a short life but she made the most of it. She fought ovarian cancer for 5 years 6 months and gave it all she could to fight it off. Unfortunately the disease got the best of her and she went peacefully on May 3rd, 2011. We love you and miss you so much!

Personal Description:

Julie was a true inspiration to everyone around her. She was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in November 2005 and battled with the deadly disease until May 2011. She fought a very long, hard fight and in the end went very peacefully with her father to heaven. She hid her disease from a lot of people because she simply didn’t want them to remember her for having ovarian cancer. Everyone who knew her, knew she was a goof ball and wanted to enjoy her life while she could. She was a dedicated mom, wife and daughter. She enjoyed Nascar racing, stars, gardening, the beach and baking. She truely enjoyed her 47 year life to the fullest. She will be greatly missed. We love you Julie!

I love white shirts, but smtmoiees I find them quite hard to wear. Its easier to grab something that doesn’t require ironing! But I do love the look of them this seems like a really good way to support the OCRF. Hopefully this doesn’t lead to whitewashing’ though.

Great post! I stumbled upon this blog and I’m rllaey glad I did. Right now I’m working on a PhD in Nutrition and had the privilege of hearing both Dr. Campbell and Dr. Esselstyn speak this fall. It’s amazing what a difference changing your diet can make! Everyone should read The China Study , rllaey eye-opening stuff.
