Julie Baker has been unable to work since one of her two chronic illnesses took a turn for the worst and she was rushed to the emergency room last October. She was devastated to learn that her Ulcerative Colitis was so far gone that she would have to have her colon removed and would face additional surgeries. In the last year, she’s had a total of four major abdominal surgeries, including one emergency operation, and has had two additional hospital stays for post-surgical obstructions. She’s scheduled to have her “semi-colon” (or J-pouch) re-connected in December, for what she hopes will be her final surgery.

Because she has been in and out of the hospital, has struggled with complications and medication issues, and her health and energy level aren’t consistent, Julie can’t return to work until her new digestive system is up and running. Unfortunately, she’s been rejected for disability compensation, and has been relying on the kindness of friends, family, her UU church, SNAP benefits (food stamps), and the food pantry to feed her family, pay rent, and keep the lights on...but after a year, it’s getting harder and harder to keep her head above water. If all goes well, she looks forward to returning to work once she is fully recovered from her next surgery.

So, it’s been a difficult year for Julie, although she probably wouldn’t describe it that way. She keeps smiling, keeps volunteering at story slams so she can tell stories, and keeps focusing on the positive.

Please come and help support one of our closest friends! If you can't make it, buy a ticket anyway!
