Author Julia Fox Garrison is more than a survivor but evangelizes for humanness in medicine as well as in our relationships. She speaks to patient advocacy groups, women’s conferences, businesses and community groups about overcoming, transforming and empowering.
She wrote Don’t Leave Me This Way (or when I get back on my feet you’ll be sorry). A memoir that chronicles her struggle to regain control over her life and her body following a massive hemorrhage resulting in a paralyzing stroke.
Julia had been a successful software customer support manager and was rising in her career when she suffered her injury. She learned to rediscover and reinvent herself as a motivational speaker, author, and healthcare advocate.
