Grace S., 80, Monroeville, PA

Grace Signore, 80, is a lifelong Pittsburgh Pirates’ fan.  Signore has inoperable brain cancer, but still watches every game from her bed and sings “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” during every seventh inning stretch, according to her daughter.  Signore worked hard her whole life, finally retiring from her job as cook for the priest at her church after being diagnosed with brain cancer.  Her wish was to meet the Pirate Parrot.  Her family surprised her with a Pirate-themed party for her 80th birthday and the big surprise was a visit from the Pirate Parrot!  Her wish was granted on November 6, 2011.
