Grace Wethor

Director, Author, & Brain Cancer Survivor

Grace Wethor is an award-winning director, best-selling author, and brain cancer survivor/advocate. After being told she had six months to live due to an untreatable brain tumor at age 13, she moved to Los Angeles and began pursuing her dreams in film with full force. She gave her first TED Talk at age 15, wrote her first book at 16, spoke at the United Nations at 17, and released her first original docu-series at 18. She is now a legislation advocate and has made her way to the White House and Capitol Hill while spearheading bills that would bring over $100m in funding to youth healthcare. Nine years later and still fighting, as a young female filmmaker, she hopes to use film to tell unseen stories and show other young people that they can pursue their dreams despite their circumstances or illness.
