    Boston teen-preneur Grace Connor recently appeared on “The Rachael Ray Show” and talked about little g ice cream co., the small-batch ice cream business she owns and operates. “I’ve been baking and making my own ice cream since I was a kid, but I decided to make it into a real business when I was diagnosed with a brain tumor,” she said. Connor spoke about how she had the tumor removed in 2015, and after that, it was “still a long road to recovery.”

    Little g ice cream is now sold at Whole Foods Market locations. “I run the business, my dad is my deliveryman, and my mom helps in the kitchen,” she said.

    And she still gives back. Connor will be hosting charity events at the Jimmy Fund Clinic at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and Rachael Ray surprised Connor with a $5,000 check from Berkshire Bank for her next fund-raiser at Dana-Farber.
