ETHEL "JOY" GRIMSLEY

FOUNDER/PRESIDENT


I am the Founder and CEO of Faith Hope and Determination, Inc.  I have served on the FHAD board since its inception. 


I was born in Safety Harbor, Florida, and currently live in Largo.  I worked for Verizon of Florida in varied management and non-management support positions for more than 40 years. 


On August 28, 2006, my son Joseph, a 35-year-old father of three was diagnosed with an aggressive blood and marrow disease known as Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML).  Doctors told Joseph that without a bone marrow transplant he would not live another year. 


We began a “fight for life” campaign to find a donor match for him.  A match was never found and on August 19, 2007, Joseph lost his battle with cancer. Even though a donor match was not found, Joseph asked me to continue the mission after he was gone to raise awareness, educate and encourage minorities to join the Marrow Registry.  It encouraged me to continue the fight to help save others.
