What an amazing story!  Watch the video below and please share this with friends.

About Curing Kid’s Cancer:

Grainne and Clay Owen created Curing Kids’ Cancer only a year after losing their nine-year-old son Killian to leukemia.

Grainne was the driving force behind starting the charity. She launched Coaches Curing Kids Cancer during an appearance on the 2004 WSB Care-a-thon raising money for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.

The idea: Asking kids’ sports teams to donate money in honor of their coach instead of buying a gift. Coaches didn’t go without a gift however. In return for a donation, coaches were sent a t-shirt and a personalized certificate.

“I hoped that we could raise $5,000 that first season,” Grainne said. “We raised $45,000 – and knew we had a great idea on our hands.”

Grainne has raised more than $1 million since that time.
