Grayson Hughes is an eight-year-old Frisco boy who has been fighting leukemia since his diagnosis in September 2011. Capturing the heart of the community, Grayson has since been declared in remission. His mother says even though tests results show Grayson does not have any cancer cells in his body, he still faces several more rounds of chemotherapy to keep the cancer from coming back. Grayson is currently undergoing a series of chemotherapy treatments, which are scheduled to end in February 2015.
While battling cancer, friends, neighbors, acquaintances and many who do not even know him, have been fighting to assist with his medical bills. As a result, the Grayson Hughes Foundation was established by fellow teachers and colleagues of Grayson’s mother, Kalee. Currently, the fundraising efforts are helping the Hughes family pay down the tremendous medical debt, but once this chapter of their lives is put behind them, it is the family’s hope to continue the foundation in an effort to help other families in similar circumstances.
Lance Hughes, Grayson’s father and a Project Manager with CB JENI Homes, expresses his appreciation, “My family would like to thank both CB JENI and Starkey Mortgage for their support. We want to say thank you to everyone who has supported us, but it’s impossible to do so. Everything that has been done – the generosity from our family, friends and even the strangers helping us – all of it has restored my faith in humanity.”
Starkey Mortgage’s Community Connection program was established in 2000 to better address the needs of the community. The mortgage company donates $250, for each loan closed by Starkey Mortgage, to the homebuyer’s charity of choice.
