Gracie's Law

Baby's health condition spurs fight for Gracie's Law

Just over a year ago, Gracie Joy Nobles was born with Down Syndrome and a hole in her heart. It was her fight for life that inspired her parents Erin Nobles, ’06, ’13, and David Nobles, ’06, to use their leadership skills to push a House Bill (HB) bearing their daughter’s name through state legislation. If this bill becomes a law, it would enable Georgians with disabilities to be placed on the organ transplant list.
