Julia Baird Triumphs Fatal Health Illness in 2015
In 2015, Baird wrote in a New York Times column that she had been diagnosed with a life-threatening health illness: Cancer.
With the sensation that the doors of death were close by, she began to write as she dwelled in the deep pond of oblivious future ahead, she wrote,
The “brave” warrior talk that so often surrounds cancer rang false to me. I didn’t want war, tumult or battle. Instead, I just prayed to God. And I think what I found is much like what Greek philosophers called ataraxia, a suspended kind of calm in which you can find a surprising strength.
Silently battling with the possibility of death, she went into the hospital for a surgery to remove the tumor from her body.
When she woke up after the eternal-alike moments of terror and despair, seeing her husband along with her family stood by her side overwhelmed her as much as the news of her successful surgery. She spent five hours and eight days in intensive care after the operation to remove the malignant tumor.

Her prognosis was good, however, like others, she carried on living with a gloomy fear that her illness might return.
A year later, healthy & cancer-free Julie wrote an article reminiscing about her past victory against her illness: Our fear of death is twinned with a thirst for life.
The thirst to live and endure is understandable. But an understanding of our own mortality can often make living sharper.
Leaving behind her terror about cancer, the agony of might be and not; she instead focused on leading a life well lived than one that was wasted in apprehension.
Julia Baird's Cancer Battle Takes Tragic Twist In 2017
A new year marks a new chapter, or so they say.
Many celebrate the eve before in hopes and wishes of a pleasant future ahead. Unfortunately, for the Baird family, 2017 started off with the worst twists.
Julia’s brother, who was the NSW Premier at that time, shockingly resigned from the post. On 19 January 2017, he opened up about the health crisis his family had been facing in a press conference while trying to hold back his tears.
His sister Julia, along with both of his parents were suffering from disastrous health illnesses. His father, Bruce had suffered a heart attack, and fortuitously his open-heart surgery had been successful. His mother, Judy, had muscular dystrophy. Meanwhile, the cancer battle Julia had put behind had returned to haunt her.
Being a loving brother and a son, Michael decided to take care of his family. After having visited his sister in the hospital a week before the conference, he told,
“You know, personal things obviously impact you and the nature of this job makes it tough to be able to support as much as you want.”
Though some new years begin with fraught, you have to keep in mind that the year has just begun--because that's the kind of the year 2017 later went on for the Baird family!

Here's an excerpt from her article, entitled, What I really want to teach my son - and what he is teaching me, revealing what kind of future she wants for her son,
What I really want my son to know is that life, with all its striving and seriousness, its cerebral quests and spiritual yearning, is contained in crisp red apples and white-marble moons, furry caterpillars and leopard-spotted slugs, the slobbering of excitable dogs, laughter, the crashing of waves, the sighting of a seal over a cliff or a cuttlefish on a reef, the scent of jasmine after a morning swim, a steaming bowl of fresh pasta, the smell of a just-baked cake; that of all these jostling, bobbing moments sustain us. They are the string that threads our days.
But if I am completely honest, this is actually what he is teaching me.
From lying on the hospital bed 'contemplating the prospect of death' as she once wrote-- to now, where the author is planning and dreaming of a happy future for her children, she is indeed a role model to all of us!
