Julie Holton has a grade 4 medulloblastoma. This specific brain tumor is typically found in children and is rare in adults. It originates in the cerebellum, however, Julie’s has moved outside the cerebellum onto the brainstem, making the tumor inoperable. She is currently undergoing radiation and chemotherapy.
Julie Holton is a 1995 graduate of New Lisbon High School. She received her Bachelors Degree in Biology with a biomedical concentration and a minor in Chemistry from UWL in 2005.
She married Travis Holton and they have a 12 year old daughter, Lexie and a 4 year old son, Carter. Julie was employed as a Medical Lab Technologist at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Hillsboro, until November 2009 when her growing brain tumor affected her motor skills and ability to work. Julie was also a Girl Scout leader and a helped at Necedah School where her children go to school.
She loves to entertain and cook at family functions and friendly parties. She enjoyed camping, hiking, running, and yoga before this disease affected her balance and vision. The most important thing to Julie is watching her children grow up.
There will be a benefit for Julie and her family on Saturday, March 12th at the New Lisbon American Legion from 11am until 5pm.
There will be food, kids activities, a texas hold-em tournament at 1pm, and much more!
