Happy 09-09-09

Bust out those cupcakes and twinkies because we have something to celebrate! (Not that being "alive" isn't something to celebrate, but I'll use any excuse for extra chocolate frosting in my life!) I received my test results back from my oncologist today, and he informed me that I'm "unremarkable." That's right --- my momma always told me I was special, but in this case, thank god, I'm not.

Cancer free. Sans cancer. My deadbeat roommate and scumbag of a disease has been evicted. Did we doubt it? It's three strikes, and you're outta here, Cancer! I mean, we're on the HOME team, baby!! OF COURSE, we were going to beat it!

And, with that one "unremarkable" word, 09-09-09 just became a very "remarkable" day.

So, I'm asking all of you to do something "remarkable" in honor of the ~900,000 individuals that are living with blood cancer today:

  • Take 9 mins to read through my Cures Rock! blog and check out
  • Donate $9 in support of my LIVESTRONG Challenge fundraising efforts, as I race for a cure and leave cancer quakin' in its boots in Austin.
  • Pass my fundraising link onto 9 of your friends, and encourage them to learn about, donate to, or even participate in events for the Lance Armstrong Foundation.
CURES ROCK! (CANCER DOES NOT.) Campaign to kick cancer to the curb!


  1. Now this is a date you will remember, eh? Thank God, Julie. I am so happy and thrilled to hear your wonderful news! Stay unremarkable, OK, you remarkable lady. Art

  2. Awesome Julie. This made my day. - howard
