The Faces of Courage Foundation has shown true dedication to helping make a difference in the lives of children coping with cancer and other blood disorders like sickle cell anemia. I appreciate the earnest efforts and community networking they have extended to the Sickle Cell Disease Association of Upper Pinellas, Pasco, Hernando Counties, Inc. On many occasions their commitment has brought joy to our clients. Thank you for all you do Faces of Courage. Sincerely, Naomi L. Mathews
