Hero Award – Grace Callwood, Survivor and Founder, We Cancerve Movement

At just 19, Grace has a list of accomplishments that far exceeds most older adults. Grace and her family’s relationship with CCF began in 2011 when she was seven and was being treated for Stage IV lymphoblastic lymphoma,  a rare form of Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, at Sinai. In 2012, she founded We Cancerve Movement, a nonprofit organization with a youth-run board of directors in order to bring happiness to homeless, sick and foster youth in the region and overseas. She is also the co-creator and executive director of a new children’s show that spotlights work young people do to bring happiness to children fighting critical illness, facing homelessness and food insecurity and aging out of foster care group homes and orphanages.
