This is an article Driscoll Children’s Hospital wrote about our amazing warrior son named Julian. Julian was 10 years old when he became ill in January 2017 with Necrotizing Fasciitis a flesh/tissue eating bacteria that resulted in the amputation of his left leg, as well as loss of muscle in his lower left back, and right axilla. He has overcome many obstacles, and beat the odds with this monster. He is resilient, strong, courageous, and the bravest person I know. I hope his story inspires many more, and continues to educate those about Necrotizing Fasciitis.
