Founders - Mandy and Heath Gregory

The founders and heart behind the Uncle Kory Foundation, Mandy and Heath Gregory.  In addition to the tragic loss of their brother, Kory Hunter, their family, like many others, has been affected by cancer in its many forms. While deliberately focused on making an impact on brain cancer, their hope is that through collaborative research, new discoveries will advance treatments in other forms of cancer as well.


Director of Operations - Renee Vachon

After losing her mother in law and dear friend Nicole Vachon to glioblastoma, Renee dedicated her time and efforts to help the Uncle Kory Foundation fund innovative research for GBM.   Her passion lies in finding ways to search for a cure for brain cancer while inspiring our next generation to learn about selfless giving.

 With a long career of design and creative direction for top ad agencies, Jay is honored to work with the Uncle Kory team. Losing his cousin Kory Hunter and uncle Ray Hunter to cancer are personal reminders that ever more research, funding and education are needed.
