Julia's Grace Foundation was created to honor the dreams and wishes of cancer patient Julia Grace Eveland, (2004 - 2013) from Royersford, PA. Julia's mother, Janet Miller-Eveland reveals, "Right before Julia left us she shared a list of ten things with us to 'make us happy' for when we needed it. This list (available on the Foundation's website -HERE) provides the heart of the Foundation's 'HUGS'."
The Foundation helps children with cancer and their families by providing support to make days “normal”. Remembering that kids need to be kids and everyone needs a “hug,” the Julia’s Grace Foundation® offers opportunities for special family moments, whether at home, in the hospital or at public events and venues. The Foundation also grants assistance or “graces” to families experiencing financial hardship due to the direct result of a child’s cancer treatment and care, raises money to be used to fund childhood cancer research projects, and works to increase public awareness of childhood cancer.
