Grace Charrier, who is of African heritage, resides in Brooklyn, New York. She is a Stage 3 Triple-Negative breast cancer survivor. Shocking, because she had no symptoms whatsoever.
A global patient leader, Grace is totally immersed in cancer advocacy and cancer policy. The opportunity to share her story, raise awareness about early detection, and the power of the patient voice enables her to be a valuable resource for cancer patients, caregivers, and anyone facing any health challenge.
Grace serves on several patient advisory boards and is armed with awards of recognition based on her high impact health, peace, and philanthropic endeavors. The host of an engaging talk show, “Cancer Convos with Grace B.” on YouTube, she hosts experts and stakeholders to share evidence-based insights on cancer and a plethora of health topics. A passionate, empathetic, and intelligent host, this is evident in her presentation, delivery, and ability to dissect the multifaceted aspects of health with her guests.
Grace published an insanely good book, IMPOSSICANT, during the pandemic in which she candidly details walking in blind faith toward healing. This memoir is written with such grace, humor, and gratitude, despite the trauma she faced.
Grace donates to and supports various cancer organizations here and on the continent of her birth, Africa. She is humbled by the positive feedback she receives for her advocacy programs and by this, is further encouraged to push the cancer agenda further than ever.
A staunch advocate for the UN Sustainable Development Goals, Grace is an invaluable asset to any endeavor and excels in working for the common good.
For her: “Early detection is key because, until there’s a cure, prevention is the cure.”
