I am deeply saddened to learn of Julie's passing. I will always fondly remember her brilliant mind and generous heart. When she learned through Facebook that I was entering The City of Hope for treatment of lymphoma, she swung into action by having folks donate blood in my name. Her legacy will live on through her family, the many nurses she taught as a professor, and the future nurses who will benefit from the scholarship named for her. My deep condolences to her family and all others who were fortunate to have known Julie.

Thank you Mrs. Wong for being the most selfless, loving, funny, and strongest nurse that I encountered. Your memories will always have a special place in my heart and mind. Thank you for setting an example for all of us to follow. May you be resting in peace. Love Daniela.
