DIY Fundraiser for The Cure Starts Now

A Grant for Grant 2024

Hi this is Julia. Three years ago on January 22, my twin brother Grant died from Medulloblastoma, a type of brain cancer. It was the saddest day of my life. I miss Grant every day.

Since 2021, with the help of Grant’s Wolf Pack, we have raised more than $200,000. That was enough to fund multiple research grants for Grant. This year, I want to raise enough to fund another for Grant and I think we can do it.

Our 11th birthday is on February 11th and it is our golden birthday this year. Can you help me by donating $11 for our 11th birthday? We will need a lot of people to donate, so please tell your family and friends.

My family now knows a lot of kids with cancer. We need more research for cures and also for treatments that aren’t so hard on kids’ bodies and brains.

All the money will go to The Cure Starts Now. 100% of the money funds brain cancer research. Thank you for remembering my brother and helping me fund a grant for Grant.

Love, Julia
