Julie Kelly, more commonly known as “Buddy” by her family, was diagnosed with Young Onset Alzheimer’s at the young age of 58. Now 63, she is an amazing lady and a loving mother and wife. She is spunky and fun, independently minded and has a dangerous sweet tooth. Julie is the epitome of selflessness, always thinking of others before herself – even battling Early Onset Alzheimer’s, she senses when one of her three adult daughters has had a bad day or when her husband of almost 38 years needs a smile. That same smile will light up any room she is in and she will share it with you, whether you know her or not. Julie is beautiful on the inside and out, unwavering in her faith, and is an inspiration to her daughters and husband every single day.
