MISSION OF THE FABER SCURRY BREAST CANCER FOUNDATION

The Faber Scurry Breast Cancer Foundation was founded by the late Dr. Adrienne Scurry-Marinnie in 2009 after being diagnosed with breast cancer.  Dr. Adrienne Scurry-Marinnie believed that it is important for women to maintain positive thinking, self-esteem and self-image while undergoing treatment for cancer.  It was also important for Dr. Scurry-Marinnie that women have some comforts of home to stimulate a mindset of peace, rest and safety, which is why the primary mission of the Faber Scurry Breast Cancer Foundation is to provide Elizabeth's Blessed Girls Care bags to women undergoing treatment for cancer.
