The Sarah Grace FoundationAugust 25, 2015 -
The Sarah Grace Foundation is a nonprofit corporation dedicated to improving the quality of life for cancer children and comforting their affected families. It was created after the death of Sarah Grace. Sarah was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia at age 11. She went through several rounds of chemotherapy and bone transplants but never made it in remission. Although she fought hard and remained positive, she lost her life to the disease at 12 years old.
The foundation works with over 25 organizations to help children and families overcome challenges and hardships of cancer. They provide programs and events for people to participate in. Become a marrow or a blood and platelet donor or even volunteer to help make a difference.
Donations are accepted by credit card or by mail. Your donations fund programs such as The Escape Hatch, which gives newly diagnosed children a suitcase filled with goodies to occupy them from the horrible news, and the Bead Program, in which each child gets to share their story using colorful beads as meaningful symbols. Additionally, donations can help the foundation provide ballgame tickets, meals, toys and games, etc.
