Julia Diane Wilson was born on April 30, 2004. She was a beautiful, healthy baby with big, blue eyes. Even as a small child, Julia had a lot of personality; she was sweet, caring, funny and, most of all, incredibly fun to be with! She had a remarkably sassy sense of humor that was well beyond her years.

Team Julia ~ Fight Like a Girl,  Inc. is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization working to provide support, joy and comfort to children and their families who are battling childhood illness and cancer.  If we can ease a child’s pain for even for one brief moment we will have succeeded in honoring Julia’s compassionate spirit.  This was the wish of our sweet, sassy, and beautiful angel, Julia Diane Wilson. 

Check out everything we've been doing lately! From our ongoing project, Seasonal Goody Bags, to providing funds for families undergoing financial burdens, to working with families to bring them all the puppy love they need, we're proud of the work we've accomplished so far and look forward to what's coming next!

Julia's Story

The Facts:

  • Forty-six children a day are diagnosed with pediatric cancer.
  • Seven children a day die from pediatric cancer.
  • Less than 4% of the NIH cancer research budget goes towards pediatric cancer.
  • More American children die of cancer than of AIDS, asthma, cystic fibrosis, diabetes and congenital abnormalities combined.
  • In the past 20 years, only two new cancer drugs have been specifically approved for pediatric use, both for acute lymphoblastic leukemia. By contrast, in 2012, a total of twenty-three drugs were approved for adults.
  • The average age for a child diagnosed with cancer is six. For breast cancer, it’s 61, and for prostate cancer, it’s 63. The average number of years lost for the adults that die is 15 years… for the children who die, it’s 69 years.
  • The American Cancer Society only gives one cent of every dollar raised to pediatric cancer.   

Team Julia ~ Fight Like a Girl, Inc. has promised to devote its energy to passionately advocating for the children suffering from pediatric cancer and the families who love and care for them.
