We had the pleasure of sitting down with 13-year-old Grayson Denby, a young and talented adolescent who was inspired to donate cards to our #KidCancerCard campaign. This campaign united artists globally to donate their creative talent for children battling cancer as part of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Grayson’s drawing of a “rainbow unicorn kitty” was a favorite among our judges and has been selected to be featured on the LIVESTRONG and Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas’ online card platforms.
Grayson’s love for drawing started when she was 11 and has continued to grow ever since. After seeing the Kid Cancer Card advertisement in August’s issue of Austin Monthly magazine, Grayson decided to submit numerous cards hoping to brightening the day of a child with cancer. Grayson explained that watching her mom’s friend battle ovarian cancer inspired her to participate in the campaign.
When she’s not drawing, Grayson spends time swimming, sailing and acting. She enjoys giving art as gifts and is currently working on a drawing of a dog for a family friend. We are so blessed to have received Grayson’s beautiful artwork and hearing her inspiring story.
We have been blown away by all of the Kid Cancer Card submissions. Every card featured beautiful and inspiring designs from artists all over the world. We would like to thank every artist who submitted a card and helped spread awareness about childhood cancer. All the Kid Cancer Card proceeds will be donated to LIVESTRONG and the Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas.
