Tributes to the girl known as Amazing Grace poured in Palm Sunday, as news of Grace Bunke's passing spread across social media.
Grace's mother, Vicki Bunke, said, “Grace departed her earthly home for her eternal one.”
Grace would have turned 15 on Monday. She had been battling osteosarcoma, an aggressive bone cancer for more than two years.
"We will be posting more details within the coming days to let you know about our plans to honor Grace’s life," Vicki Bunke wrote. "I can share with you, however, that part of Grace’s last wishes was for any and all donations people wish to make in her honor can be made to her 2018 Swim Across America fundraising page (All proceeds benefit her treating clinic/hospital - Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta)."
