CURE Childhood Cancer is honored to have a diverse and well-connected Board of Directors and we would like our community to get to know them. In this spotlight series we will highlight a board member and share why he or she is dedicated to CURE.
Patty Grimes has been a CURE Board Member for two years and is the Charity Liason for the Country Club of The South.
“I became aware of CURE through our neighborhood Charity Guild. I thought it was a wonderful organization with a great mission, but it did not become personal for me until a close family friend lost his vivacious and beautiful teenage daughter, Megan, to osteosarcoma after a three year battle. As I watched the cancer wreak havoc on her body, I knew I had to do something to help find a cure. I like the fact that CURE not only provides family support for childhood cancer patients, but also funds significant research to find less toxic treatments which will lead to a cure. It is a privilege to be a CURE Board Member in honor of those who have suffered from these dreadful diseases.”
