Grace Callwood heals the sick

Grace Callwood heals the sick

Grace Callwood, a nine year old cancer survivor from Bel Air, Maryland, is inspiring many other children and adults through We Cancerve:

When she first began receiving chemo in 2011, Grace put on a lot of weight and was unable to wear her brand new back-to-school clothes. When the little girl discovered that a homeless family in her neighborhood had two young girls of her own age, she decided to give them her clothes.

And from that first simple act of charity, We Cancerve was born.

Grace and her board members have used simple solutions to try to create change in her community. They raised $600 through a lemonade stand, splitting the money between the hospital where Grace received treatment and a foundation that brightens the lives of kids with cancer. They’ve also collected toys, clothes, and beauty supplies for youth who are living in a local shelter.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
