The Reflections Of Grace Foundation is named after Grace Elizabeth Ekis, who was just five years old when she lost her courageous 13-month battle with a rare cancerous brain tumor on Valentine’s Day 2008. Grace’s cancer was a diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG), a tumor of the brainstem for which there is no known cure and there have been no advances in treatment options for more than thirty years. As its mission, the Reflections Of Grace
Foundation is dedicated to:
- Providing financial, emotional, and educational support for children and their families affected by
pediatric brain cancer
- Raising awareness of
all types of pediatric brain tumors, with a particular focus on DIPGs, or Brainstem Gliomas
- Joining with other like-minded organizations in educating, aiding and funding the search for a cure for DIPG and other forms of pediatric brain cancer, in the hope of curing all cancers.
