Kyle Grady Memorial Fund

Kyle Grady was just an infant when he was diagnosed with retinoblastoma, a cancer that left him legally blind and ultimately led to his death as a young man. When the Apple IPad first came on the market, Kyle found it extremely useful as a visual aid. He also found the IPad to be a useful tool in learning to play the guitar. The purpose of the Kyle Grady Fund is to provide IPads (and/or guitars) to young people who have uncorrectable visual impairments.
