Continued Community Support Needed for Juliana Grace; Ponca City’s Sweetheart

Ponca City’s Sweetheart Juliana Grace Creamer was first diagnosed just days after her 6th birthday with an atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumor (AT/RT), a very rare and fast-growing tumor in September of 2020. She then went through surgery and weeks of treatment. Support for Juliana and her family from the Ponca City community, including a recent fundraiser held by the Ponca City Noon Lions, are a big part of her fight against cancer. The group raised $6,000 in that fundraiser they called “Saving Grace”.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation also plans to send Juliana and her family to Disney World in July if she is able.
Juliana is now 7 years old and recently had surgery to remove a second tumor. Ponca City is once again being asked to continue their support for Juliana and her family as she continues the fight against cancer. Juliana will be receiving treatments at OU Children’s Hospital in Oklahoma City for the next 3 weeks. She will receive two kinds of chemo at the hospital. The treatments are very acidic and cause burning to her skin and she must bathe several times a day.
But still, through it all, she smiles.
The family is asking for our community to flood Juliana’s hospital room with cards.
Cards and support to Juliana and her family can be sent to OU Children’s Hospital, 1200 Children’s Avenue, room # 10240, Oklahoma City, Ok, 73104. Donations to Juliana’s account can also be made at Equity Bank in Ponca City.
