About Us

We Are Faces of Courage

Faces of Courage Foundation, Inc. is a nonprofit 501(c)3, located in Tampa, FL offering free camp to cancer and blood disorder survivors, and their families. The foundation was founded by Peggie D. Sherry, a cancer survivor herself, on January 6th, 2004.

Faces of Courage provides day outings and overnight camps for adults, children and families touched by all types of cancer and blood disorders. All programs are made available to the participants and their families at no cost.

Our services are palliative in support and focus on developing strong positive attitudes towards recovery and good health management.  We currently have served over 11,000 cancer families with the help of over 1,600+ active volunteers.  We are able to provide our programs FREE at No Cost to participants through the generosity of corporate sponsors, civic, social and service organizations, individual donors, grants, fundraisers and bequests.

While members naturally support one another, Faces of Courage is a camp, not a support group. Advice and help is readily available, but the organization primarily focuses on creating a fun, relaxed environment for women, men and children with cancer and other blood illnesses. Each camp and/or program aims to create an environment free of judgment for campers to take a break from the everyday stresses of overcoming their illnesses.
