Grace is the founder and chairman of the We Cancerve Movement, an all-youth led nonprofit organization she founded in 2012 when she was a pediatric oncology patient, having been diagnosed with Stage IV Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma at age 7. She completed chemotherapy in April 2014 and remains cancer free. Grace is enrolled in the Harford County Public Schools, and plays the trumpet with the school band. She is also a dancer with Rage Box Contemporary Dance Company in Forest Hills, Md. Her organization creates giving opportunities that can be supported by the community to bring happiness to homeless, sick and foster children.
The We Cancerve board of advisors is made up of youth – ages 7 through 18 – with strengths in various leadership qualities who provide fresh ideas and unique perspectives. They work together to provide services within the We Cancerve Movement’s mission areas.
To date, the charity has donated 172 Easter Baskets to area sick, homeless and foster children and has provided more than $1,100 in cash grants to Sinai Hospital and Casey Cares Foundation. In addition, the charity has donated nearly 150 new and like-new back-to-school clothes to homeless youth; more than 150 TransFUNers kits to help hospitalized children decorate their IV poles; more than 140 pounds of school supplies to children in Maryland and Kenya, East Africa; and amassed almost 150 community service hours. This is just a sample of the charity's service to hundreds of homeless, sick and foster children.
