Julie Marie Weber
The Grace Alexander Foundation’s first recipient was Julie Marie Weber, an amazing young woman. Julie was diagnosed with neuro-endocrine carcinoma at an advanced stage in March 2006. The cost of medical care and hospital visits consumed her savings and forced Julie to sell the home she worked so hard to build.
Sadly, Julie lost her battle with cancer on April 22, 2008 at the age of 29. Her final evening speaks volumes about Julie’s character and inner strength, as she refused assistance and insisted on walking into the hospice center on her own accord. Julie faced this disease head on with a tenacious spirit and positive attitude. Her life has inspired so many people and we hope that Julie will continue to inspire people to reach out and join our fight against cancer.
Each year, the Julie Weber Memorial Classic tournament is held at Lake Mary High School to raise money for student scholarships. Over the years, this event has granted thousands of dollars in scholarships to graduating seniors from the Lake Mary Lady Rams Soccer Team. Learn more at www.juliewebermemorialclassic.com.
