In 2001, Grace became ill, so she went to see her doctor, but the prognosis was grim. It turns out that she had cancer. Fortunately, she had Peter, who stayed with her through the chemotherapy, radiation treatments, and the surgeries. Through it all, he made sure he gave his wife all the love and affection she needed.

Patients diagnosed with early-stage cancer often have a 56 percent chance of surviving for about five years.

But nothing is written in stone, and that certainly applied to Grace, who was determined to cling to life a little longer.
