The tree is lit in Gold to symbolize Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. The supporting foundation is Caring With Grace. Caring With Grace was
started by an 11 year-old girl in 2014, Grace Targonski, when she found out her younger brother needed surgery to remove a cyst in his brain, while Grace’s Aunt was fighting cancer. This was when Grace started to raise awareness and collect donations to help children and their families battle cancer.“ Caring With Grace is dedicated to bring support to pediatric cancer patients and their families in any way possible.
There was an event on Thursday, September 12th around the tree at the Roger Ludlow Triangle in East Norwalk, CT. Grace Targonski joined the Third Taxing District Commissioners and Staff to light up the tree in Gold and speak about her organization.
