The Story Behind: The Grace Fedora
Inspired by this fiercely adorable fighter, SuperKid Grace has taught MaxLove Project exactly what it means to be graceful. We couldn’t be more honored to name this trilby with novelty cording band fedora after Grace.
Sweet Grace has fiery red hair and a spark behind her eyes. A force all of her own, she entered the world 14 weeks early, at just two pounds. After a rough first few months, her parents had hoped that all their medical problems were behind them. Then, just a few weeks after Grace started kindergarten, she was diagnosed with medulloblastoma. Grace underwent intense radiation and several rounds of chemo, was poked with needles, suffered from nausea, and lost her hair. Cancer isn’t easy for anyone, and Grace has struggled with emotional, physical, and neurological side effects of her cancer and treatment. Through it all, Grace has remained strong in her spirit and generosity, and continues to show us just what (and who) Grace is.
An inspiration to so many battling cancer, our partner, the St. Baldrick’s Foundation has been honored to have her as a 2014 ambassador. When Grace isn’t busy representing the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, she can be found being a normal kid in 5th grade. She loves playing with her older sister, Fiona and taking care of her new baby sister, Esmae. She aspires to go to the school her Daddy works, Brown University, and has big career plans! When Grace grows up, she will be a firefighter, a veterinarian, a hair stylist, and a mom. If there’s anything Grace has taught us, it’s that she can do absolutely anything. We can’t wait to watch this fiery fighter continue to make the world her own.
We are so honored to stand by Grace and her incredible family, as they continue to light a fire of hope and resiliency in the childhood cancer community. This family is determined to see better care options for our kids, and we are honored to help them make it happen.
