The Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust was founded in memory of 4 year old Grace Kelly who passed away in 2014. The vision of the Trust was born from the inspiration that Grace imparted on the people she met. Grace was a compassionate and caring little girl, who looked after others before herself.

We are making a difference to other children whilst fulfilling Grace's wish of helping others.

Grace's Story


Grace was born on 9th July 2010. A petite and very caring little girl who loved to run, climb and be active. In September 2014, Grace started school. So small but proud in her new uniform.

A few weeks into term, Grace became suddenly unwell and was admitted to hospital. She was found to have a renal malignant rhabdoid tumour. Grace passed away just three weeks later on 8th November 2014 surrounded by her family. Grace was just 4 1/4 years of age when she died.

Out of this devastation, Grace's wish of helping others has grown into an inspiring legacy that is helping save the lives of children diagnosed with cancer.

Because the children of today all deserve a tomorrow.
