Gracious Hearts started in 2020 during the pandemic. The team walks in support of Emily and Grace, two Hodgkins lymphoma survivors. The team walks in support of both Grace and Emily, and others in the blood cancer community.
Grace was diagnosed in 2020, with stage two Hodgkins Lymphoma, after a routine biopsy after open heart surgery for an unrelated condition. Today Grace is in remission, which isnt something that everyone gets to experience; But because of research towards the cancer community, and fundraisers such as Light the Night, you get to support people like me; lets work towards ending all blood cancers and cancers alike.
