Tristan Julies Journey Campaign

Hi There,

Tristan Julies (13 years old, currently weighing 26KG) is the eldest of 3 children, born a true warrior, miracle, and blessing at 27 weeks weighing 407 grams on Saturday 07 November 2009. He is such a joy.

He came into this world as a fighter and has an amazing fighting spirit.

Years later, in August 2021, Tristan fell ill. We then consulted with our GP, and he discovered he has TB. Tristan was still not feeling much better after 2 weeks of treatment and struggling to breathe. We took him for a 2nd opinion on Monday, 23 August by Wednesday, 25 August, he was diagnosed with Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma with extensive metastasis to the lungs and spread to spine August 2022. 

Tristan is also currently suffering from chronic lung disease and will be making use of oxygen 24/7.

His always smiling, and should you ask him how he feels, his answer will always be good. Never complaining. When you look at him, you will definitely be amazed of how resilient he is.

For our son to continue having the best quality of life, we have no alternative option but request for financial assistance in any way possible to assist with his medical needs and expenses. 

We thank you for reading our story and may you always be blessed.
