The question that puts Julia’s life into perspective is not how did she manage to cope with cancer, but how did cancer manage to cope with her? I knew Julia fleetingly, but mostly by association through my poet/writer wife, but we had a shared interest in palliative care, and as long as I continue to work in that field I will use Julia’s writings as an inspiration and tonic to those journeying through the valley of the shadow.
