Grace in the Need of the Moment
His Grace Foundation provides physical, emotional, and financial support for patients and families in the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit (BMTU) of Texas Children’s Hospital (TCH).
It was founded by Erin and John Kiltz after their youngest daughter, Gracie, who was diagnosed with leukemia at the age of 2 and began treatment at TCH.
The Kiltz family was blessed with a strong support base of friends and family members who tended to their daily needs so they could focus entirely on Gracie’s care.
Providing Grace Under Pressure
How much of a difference does His Grace Foundation’s support make during trying times?
The patients and families we have served can speak to that.
Our Patient Stories
Boggan Family Story
After 8 months of tests, life-threatening sickness and searching for answers, a 10- month-old named Kate Boggan was diagnosed with Congential Amegakaryocytic Thrombctopenia (CAMT), an extremely rare form of bone marrow failure.
During Kate’s treatment and transplant, her mother, Lindsay, discovered that she was pregnant with Kate’s brother, Will, who would also be diagnosed with CAMT.
HGF was honored to serve this family during both of their children’s transplants and hospital stays.
