Today’s guest is Julie Randall author of Patient 71
This Australian Bestseller tells the true story of Julie Randall, a healthy and happy wife and mother of two teenage daughters living on the picturesque beaches of Sydney. In June of 2012, Julie thought her life was just about perfect, but days after her 50th birthday celebration, her idyllic existence took a shocking and devastating turn. She was diagnosed with stage four metastatic advanced melanoma, handed a brochure on palliative care, and told to get her affairs in order because she only had months to live. Julie refused to crawl into bed and surrender to her presumed fate. She had watched her mother suffer a similar ordeal, but Julie was not about to leave a husband she loved and two daughters who needed her. Instead, she made a promise to them that she would ‘fix it’ and that she would not die. In searching for answers, Julie came across an experimental drug trial taking place in the United States that was showing some promise, but the trial was full at 70 patients and was limited to US citizens only. Through relentless appeals and sheer determination, Julie became PATIENT 71. Gambling against all odds, she left her family to join the trial in Portland, Oregon, not knowing if she would ever return to Sydney. Patient 71 is the story of a woman’s strength and courage, and her triumph over a fatal diagnosis with the undying support of her husband, her daughters, and numerous extended family members. Readers cannot help but to be drawn into the life of this beautiful family and laugh and cry along with them. Julie and her family teach us how to not only survive life’s challenges, but how to live with joy and laughter through them. Julie’s incredible story has become a source of hope and strength to many individuals faced with a lifethreatening illness, and for the past eight years, Julie has made it her life’s purpose to mentor other cancer patients. She is also an international motivational speaker and has spoken at conferences and cancer fundraising events around the world. Today, Julie continues to spend most of her time in Sydney, thankful for every day with her husband and daughters.
