Director of Children's Outreach
Julia Sabados has been a board member since Let's Planet Giving started. Her passion is and always was helping people in need, especially families touched by pediatric cancer as well as spreading awareness of it. In 2009, her family was affected by cancer with very unexpected diagnosis of their son Alex. Alex fought a courageous battle against brain cancer, but succumbed to the disease and passed away in March 2010, at the age of 14. He had a deep, caring side, with a big kind heart, always looking to help others before thinking of himself. He never missed a chance to smile or passed up a chance to treat someone with kindness. In memory of their beloved son our family and friends started the annual Day of Kindness to encourage others to act kindly and make somebody’s day astounding. When she is not working or helping others she love traveling with her husband, hiking, gardening and spending time with family.
