"To watch and listen to Julie will bring about feelings that we don't often feel: astonishment, respect and awe. She truly personifies what a miraculous recovery is; not only did she survive after a severe brain stem injury (with a 4% chance of survival) she is positively thriving, and should be an inspiration to all-both able-bodied and physically challenged.​"
