I was recognized by a blog follower today :)

While visiting my friend Jessica during her final chemo infusion I was approached by a patient in the waiting room who asked me if my name was Julie. When I said yes she asked if I was Julie Olsen with the blog! When I confirmed that I was she told me she follows the blog and recognized me from the pictures I've posted recently. This beautiful young lady was recently diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer and has the same team of doctors that I have and she was there for chemo today. A few minutes later we were all in the infusion room, cheering Jessica on for her final chemo and hearing about this other young lady's story. We exchanged contact information and we're looking forward to including her for our next BC warrior sister luncheon in the next week or two. I want to respect her privacy so I won't say her name until she gives me permission to do so. So, my new friend - please let me know if it's OK with you if I mention your first name or if you'd rather remain anonymous. :) We're thrilled to have met you and look forward to cheering you on as you proceed through your treatment journey. You are in my prayers. Praise God for the countless miracles in every day.

  1. Hi Julie!
    It was so much fun meeting you girls today
    :-) All of you guys are amazing and I have spent many nights reading your blog after I was diagnosed. After I learned I was triple negative I started google anything that had to do with word triple negative :-) and that's how I found your blog :-) I love your blog. It really helped me a lot. Still does so please keep us updated. Can't wait for the lunch :-)
    And of course you can say my name :-)
