“You never really know how much you need this help
until you are going through cancer and the college process.”
Why We Exist
Grace was 20 days past her 1st birthday when she was diagnosed with a rare form of pediatric cancer. As Grace fought for her life, Anthony and Michelle’s lives stopped. Every moment they had was dedicated to making sure Grace received the medical treatments she needed.
One night Anthony arrived home and there was no power in the house. He realized they hadn’t paid the electric bill in months. He began to wonder how a parent or teen dealing with cancer can remember all the details when applying to college AND still fight cancer.
The National GRACE Foundation’s College Awareness Program was established to provide the assistance that young cancer fighters and their families need to navigate the college admissions and financial aid process, all for free. It is Anthony and Michelle’s way of giving back to all the people that helped them and their family when they needed it most.
