Our beloved friend and guest blogger, Grace Wenzel, died on Friday May 8 at the age of 23. Grace was initially diagnosed with Stage 1 melanoma at the age of 18, and by 22 her melanoma had metastasized to her distant organs and later to her brain.
Grace is one of the reasons WHY our foundation continues to advocate for early detection and prevention of melanoma. Grace is at peace, her body no longer in pain. Her story and beautiful life will forever be written in the stars.
While cancer may have taken Grace’s time on this earth, cancer was no match for her beautiful and irrepressible spirit. We are sharing the message written by Grace’s family below since we believe that Grace continues to teach us so much about life and living.
