Grayson Gouveia, a student at Central Union Preschool, was a loving, kind, and playful boy. Shortly after his fifth birthday, Grayson was diagnosed with Glioblastoma, the most aggressive form of brain cancer and rarely found in children.
After learning of his illness, his family, friends and the broader community rallied around Grayson, providing support for his courageous battle with cancer. Grayson received encouragement from people around the world, through financial donations, loving messages and powerful prayers. He was a remarkably brave young boy who never once complained about his struggles. Throughout his life, Grayson embodied the same values that Hospice Hawaii holds dear.
Grayson’s final gift was to leave a legacy that his family will share in honor of their brave son. He remains an inspiration to his parents and the many people who were blessed to get to know him during his brief, but meaningful, life.
