Grace Suomi

Grace Suomi - Innovator Award

Grace Suomi will be honored with our Innovator Award.

Grace was 5 years old when she was diagnosed with a rare pediatric cancer called Ewing's Sarcoma. Grace began treatment at Mattel Children's Hospital UCLA immediately from a team of dedicated doctors and nurses and, during that very challenging and uncertain time for her family, their community of friends helped them in many ways.

Grace is now 9 years old and is in remission. In an effort to give back to others in need, the Suomi Family established Grace's Basket Foundation to help families whose children are in treatment at Mattel Children's Hospital UCLA.

This non-profit foundation is committed to providing much needed groceries, gas gift cards and financial support. Over 100 families have benefited from Grace's Basket since 2011.
