Grace's Gift

Grace Skief, forever 11, laid down her battle with D.I.P.G., a brain stem cancer on July 31, 2015 after a short, but brutal battle of 3 months. She is remembered as generous, silly, encouraging, talented at cooking, a friend to little ones and critters of all kinds and determined to stand up for what she believes. Pediatric brain cancer and DIPG in particular are vastly unexposed to the world despite being pushed to the top of the deadliest cancers in children. Due to this lack of awareness, options are extremely limited not only for a cure, but also treatment that is helpful, affordable and accessible. We intend to offer financial assistance to the families that seek alternative treatment options in the form of non-income based grants. We will build awareness of this disease through fundraising and an annual DIPG Memorial Christmas tree to honor those fallen heroes as well as a toy drive for a local children’s hospital oncology floor. We will continue to unite with other charities and social workers with similar desires to accomplish these goals.

From the standpoint of daily life, however, there is one thing I do know: that we are here for the sake of each other, above all, for those upon whose smile
and well-being our own happiness depends, and also for the countless unknown souls with whose fate we are connected by a bond of sympathy.
Many times a day I realize how much my own outer and inner life is built upon the labors of others, both living and dead, and how earnestly I must
exert myself in order to give in return as much as I have received and am still receiving.”

-Albert Einstein
