Showering Julie with Love

Laurel, MD


We started this page to allow all those who care about Julie Tuinstra to share their love. We will post information for all to stay updated on her treatment and needs. Julie was diagnosed suddenly with leukemia. Julie's family, 8 children and a grandson, depend on her daily and we would like to set her mind at ease by caring for all their needs, along with her own. Please reach out, text preferred, to Justine at 808-358-5904 if you have questions or ideas!
