Charity description

Thank you for visiting the MyDonate page for The Julie Mountford Dawson Foundation. The foundation was established following the untimely death of Julie Mountford, aged just 53. I had the honour & privilege to marry Julie & share 25 years of her wonderful life, & to witness at first hand, what an amazing, beautiful, incredible, creative, talented, compassionate, loving & courageous human being she was. Julie was my anchor, my soul mate, & inspiration, for those 25 years & her values, principles, & love for the miracle of life, will guide me in whatever time I have left on this beautiful planet of ours.

Julie will always live on within me. She will live on in the hearts of those people whose lives she touched with such positive energy and grace; her wider family, her friends, & the people that used the health & social services that Julie devoted so much of her life to. The Julie Mountford Dawson Foundation is just one practical way in which Julie’s love & positive energy can live on.

The foundation will honour and remember Julie by raising funds for causes close to her heart. There were many of these but the 4 trustees (me & 3 of Julie’s closest friends) wished to recognise Julie’s long & brave battle with cancer & the positive approach that she adopted to managing her illness. Julie did everything she could to remain healthy, both physically & mentally; & the trustees believe that it was this strength of character & determination that enabled Julie to spend her last few years enjoying life as much as possible and sharing wonderful, special times with me & all the important people in her life. Certain cancer service providers played a very important role in the last years of Julie’s life & will hopefully benefit from the work of our foundation. We also hope that individual cancer patients will benefit directly, through grants to buy books, including those that provide help & advice about healthy lifestyles to people living with cancer.
