The GGC has many moving parts, and each one of the individuals on the team plays a significant role in impacting the lives of the families they serve. I am eager to begin meeting more teammates, patients, donors, investors, partners, and friends of the GGC to hear their GGC stories and explore ways to advance the mission.”

“Cady Nell brings experience and enthusiasm to the GGC Foundation, and we are thrilled to welcome her into this leadership role,” said Boo Ramage, Interim Executive Director of the Foundation. “She is already developing a plan to hit the ground running, and we look forward to adding her to our dedicated team.”
