What's New
Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month - and something For Grace will consider sparking legislation around once Sacramento is out of its COVID freeze. This new concern is born out of our founder's recent remission from triple-negative breast cancer (the worst prognosis) - and her concern of a recurrence. The For Grace team sends our good energies to all who have survived this brutal disease, and who've been traumatized by the treatment and live in anxiety as a result...

October’s Story of the Month

Check out For Grace's October Story of the Month as we continue our focus on the pain-cancer connection. Pat Wetzel expected a long road when diagnosed with slow-growing lymphoma, but she didn't think it would be so painful. After starting her chemo regimen, Pat began to experience devastating joint pain that turned this once-active athlete into a scooter user. Forgoing steriods, she found lasting relief with acupuncture and other integrative remedies. Despite ongoing pain from cancer treatment, Pat travels the world while advising, "You're the CEO of your health."

Cancer Dx Examined on The Mighty

This Thursday (September 24 @ 1pm PT), catch the latest episode of “The Pain-Cancer Connection” on The Mighty.  Host Cynthia Toussaint will interview patient advocate Donna Pinto about the controversial “stage zero” breast cancer, also known as DCIS - and how to protect yourself from over-diagnosis and potentially unnecessary, harmful treatment. A topic intimate to both women, and a conversation not to be missed. Looking forward to seeing y'all there!

Long-Time Supporter Passes

With a very heavy heart, we say goodbye to actor, For Grace supporter and our friend, Kevin Dobson. Some of you remember him from Knots Landing, but we'll remember Kevin as the eloquent, passionate man who always said "YES" to whatever we asked of him. Kevin turned everything to gold - and his generous spirit of service and honor will forever live in our hearts.
