My Story

At nineteen months old, Grace Oughton was diagnosed with a rapidly progressing cancer called Neuroblastoma. Because of the rare nature of Grace's cancer, the best treatment option required her to travel to a specialty center where she underwent chemotherapy and other aggressive treatments. Grace's initial therapy took place at Children's Hospital Boston and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Jimmy Fund Clinic. Grace was declared in remission in June of 2006, prior to enduring the first of two stem cell transplants. On February 14th, 2007 the Oughton family was blindsided by the news that Grace's cancer had returned. They resumed the fight to save their daughter and are living every parent's worst nightmare. On October 29th, 2007 Grace earned her wings and is in Heaven with Jesus.
