About His Grace Foundation
His Grace Foundation provides physical, emotional and financial support for the patients and
families on the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit (BMTU) of Texas Children’s Hospital (TCH), was
founded by Erin and John Kiltz after their youngest daughter, Gracie, 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.
His Grace Foundation provides physical, emotional and financial support for the patients and families on the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit (BMTU) of Texas Children’s Hospital.
