Julian is a 3-year-old-boy from Knightdale. Julian was diagnosed with childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia and a rhinocerebral mycosis infection when he was a year old.
After aggressive chemotherapy and surgery, tests reveal no signs of cancer and minimal fungal infection in his blood. Julian continues his chemotherapy treatment at home, so he is still at high risk for other infections. He also requires a feeding tube. He has developmental delays, especially related to speech and will have maxillofacial reconstructive surgery as a teen.
Julian loves the water, whenever they are near the water he will sit there for hours playing. Meg’s Smile Foundation provided Julian and his extended family a beach trip so that he could play in the water and have fun!
Thank you for providing the support necessary to help children battling like Julian.Beach Trip
