Grace Money was only four years old when she was diagnosed in late December 2017 with an inoperable brain tumour shortly after a family holiday to Tasmania with her dad Liam, mum Jo and two sisters Ellie and Poppy. Grace fought the cruel disease courageously, undergoing six weeks of radiotherapy treatment at the RCH and Peter Mac to shrink the tumour. A happy, vibrant and forever smiling little girl, Grace loved rainbows, unicorns, whale sharks, spider monkeys and chickens. Post radiation treatment, Grace was able to swim with dolphins and interact with as many animals as she could. Animals brought so much joy and happiness to Gracie. Sadly Grace lost her battle on October 2nd, 2018 at just 5 years of age. Her dad Liam and mum Jo have been working tirelessly to change the odds for other families, by raising awareness and funds through participation in Connor’s Run and hosting Gracie’s Gift, an event held at Riverside Cricket Club, with money raised supporting the RCD Foundation and the McGrath Foundation respectively.
