Vale Julia Watson.

View descriptionShare

What happens at the end of life when cancer finally catches up? For Julia Watson there was a wonderful feeling of being overwhelmed with love. Humanitarian, mature age student, published author, mother and wife Julia passed away on Sunday 18th December 2016. In January of 2015 she was given 6 to 9 months to live, which she managed to stretch out into almost two joy-filled years. Listen to Meshel Laurie speak to Julia from her bedside in a touching conversation about life, love and family, then hear again their first talk about Julia's book Breakfast, School Run, Chemo, and how cancer shaped her identity.
