Grace wishes to meet the Pope!

Gracie CBS This Morning

“ My motto is, you have no other choice but to be strong ”

- Gracie

No one should ever have to experience nine chemotherapy treatments in order to get better, but that is exactly what Grace has gone through while fighting neuroblastoma.

Grace who also goes by the nickname, Cookie, for being a tough cookie, knew exactly what she wanted to wish for when she was asked the magical question, "If you could have one wish, what would it be?" 

Grace responded to that question, saying, "I wanted to meet the Pope and I wanted to go to Rome and meet the Pope because I have really strong faith and faith has helped me through this journey and it would be cool to have a blessing by him."

Grace recently traveled to Italy where she was able to receive her blessing from the Pope. We look forward to hearing more about Grace's wish when she returns from Italy.
