Julie Saint-Fleur suffered a tragedy that left her with second and third-degree burns all over her back and legs, yet she lived to tell her story and inspire others in her children’s book “Lilian is Alright.” Julie tells The Doctors about her experience and motivation to write this book.
Julie wrote “Lilian is Alright” to share her experience in the form of a child’s character. The character was burned the same way she was and goes through the same emotions that Julie went through.
OB/GYN expert Dr. Nita Landry says she actually read about Julie’s book on another burn victim’s social media post and thought she sounded amazing! Dr. Nita asks Julie how her experience has changed her.
“It changed me in the way that I now see there’s purpose in everything we go through, and I had to learn to be honest with my emotions, when I was sad, when I was angry, but in the end, everything was alright, just like I wrote in the book.”

Today, Julie is fully healed as far as her mobility, but she does have scars on her entire back and the back of her legs. Plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon says he is glad to hear she healed without contracture deformities and limitation of movement. Since she is in the last phase of scaring, The Doctors want to help Julie continue her journey. They have arranged for Siperstein Dermatology Group to evaluate her and treat her discoloration and scarring.
