Grater's Cones for the Cure a benefit for The Cure Starts Now

DIPG Warrior Aralyn

Graeter's Cones for the Cure is about more than just ice cream. Your support makes a difference for kids fighting cancer by helping to fund groundbreaking research. Each of our Cones Ambassador Warriors has their own story to tell about their battle and how much your support means to them.


Aralyn is an amazing, smart, hilarious ten-year-old girl. She is the youngest in her family. She enjoys playing softball and soccer. She loves to read. Her hobbies include creating artwork, cheering on her siblings at all of their sporting events, slumber parties, spending time with her friends, and helping her mom take care of her little buddy Grant, who has a trach and a gtube. Sea turtles, the color orange, Squishmallows, sour candy, and chips are some of her favorites. Aralyn is kind, and selfless. She's goofy and makes everyone around her laugh and feel love. There is nobody like her.

Elena's Blueberry Pie

In 2008, in support of The Cure Starts Now, Graeter’s ice cream auctioned off a once in a lifetime chance to create your own flavor. The winners of the auction worked with Graeter's to help develop a flavor to honor Elena Desserich, the inspiration for The Cure Starts Now. Now a Limited Edition seasonal flavor, Elena's Blueberry Pie honors the memories of all young lives affected by pediatric cancer and supports The Cure Starts Now's mission to find the Homerun Cure for all cancers.
