Grant stepped up to the plate to raise awareness for Parkinson's

After his diagnosis, Grant went from an undersized forward to a spokesperson, standing alongside giants like Michael J. Fox, and the late Muhammad Ali. Grant had come to terms with his diminishing physical capabilities, as well as the tremors and instability caused by this disease. Grant was also okay being a background character for a cause that is much bigger than himself. According to Grant, the biggest battles are the ones that we usually do not hear about.
