MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. — The mom and Georgia College and State University alumna behind ‘Gracie’s Law’ is set to speak to nursing students on campus come Monday.

If signed into law, the bill would give kids with disabilities access to organ transplants.

According to a release from Georgia College, right now Georgia doesn’t have laws to stop discrimination against the disabled or laws that ensure they have equal access to organ transplants.

That’s exactly the kind of problem Erin Nobles and her daughter, Gracie, could’ve run into last year.

Gracie has Down syndrome, and in 2019, she was showing signs of congestive heart failure and problems with her kidneys.

At just 3-months-old, Gracie had surgery to repair a hole in her heart.

Thankfully, the surgery was successful, but she could’ve been denied a heart transplant if she needed one because of her disabilities.

As Gracie’s mom and a nurse herself, Nobles has been working hard to get the bill passed, and attended the state general assembly last month.

At the assembly, Rep. Rick Williams and Rep. Mack Jackson formally introduced the bill to the state House of Representatives.

Nobles got her undergrad nursing degree in 2006 and her Master of Science in Nursing in 2013 in from Georgia College. She works at Jefferson Hospital in Louisville, Georgia.

She’ll be speaking with nursing students Monday at 9 a.m. in the Health Sciences Building.
