Julie's Story

This story is two-fold. I was diagnosed with stage IIIa colon cancer in January 2022. During my battle, a fellow colon cancer patient, Christian Eisenhauer, reached out to me to give support, advice, and love. She died in August at the age of 38, but her message of awareness continues to be spread even in her death. I'm a journalist and recently shared her story:

Julie's Advice

"Colon cancer is preventable. Please put your apprehension aside and get screened. It could save your life. It saved mine."

-Julie Luck

There's a saying in the cancer community. No one fights alone. Christian made sure I had all the information I needed. Now that she's gone, I am continuing to push her message about awareness and more research. Her death is not in vain.
