Pray for Gray is the only North Dakota 501(c)3 nonprofit brain tumor organization. It was founded by Julie Fletcher. It aspires to be an organization filled with hope, to educate and to raise awareness of brain tumors, to help meet the needs of other brain tumor patients and their families, and to ultimately raise funds for new research and patient survival. Proceeds Pray for Gray accumulates will go to help area brain tumor survivors and their families and the American Brain Tumor Association (ABTA) and other brain tumor research programs.

The goal of Pray for Gray is to share stories of people who have been affected by brain tumors, showing the reality of their existence, but yet creating an avenue for hope. Hope comes in the form of new treatments to fight this disease, a disease that affects the core of our existence; the Central Nervous System. (The brain and spinal cord together). This disease can control the center for thought, emotion, and movement; and can have devastating effects to a person's physical and cognitive abilities. More...

After being diagnosed with a malignant, aggressive brain tumor in the spring of 2007, I have been determined to beat this desease. In the fall of 2007 I was invited to attend a brain tumor fundraising event in Minneapolis. From that year on, I continued to support this event in hopes to someday find a cure for brain tumors. Feeling inspired by the event, I had a dream to start my own event closer to home in hopes of bringing together other individuals with brain tumors right here in our own surrounding area. It is a night to bring together individuals who have been struck by this disease and their family and friends and to share hope.

Why Gray? Gray is the color of the brain and also the symbol for brain cancer.
