Our Story:
From 1999 through 2003 Peggie D. Sherry was the Regional Director of a Cancer Camp based out of NY. When in 2003 her Breast Cancer came back for the second time in six months they decided to close the FL program. At that time the campers rallied around Peggie and encouraged her to start a nonprofit to continue providing weekend camps and day outings. In January 2004 Faces of Courage was born using an inheritance Peggie received from her parents, John and Cynthia Drolshagen, who both had faced cancer during their lifetimes. In the past 10 years cancer campers have attended these ‘free’ programs from all over the United States and the Caribbean Islands.
