Mary believes that being a strong, independently minded woman is one of the greatest qualities one can obtain, and nothing beats being surrounded by other women with the same fierce nature. This is what drew her to Leah and Sarah and their gracefulness and strength they put into the Foundation4Love. Three months after joining the board, her husband Justin was diagnosed with glioblastoma, an aggressive brain cancer. Community, love, and lots of coffee are what carried her and her husband through the last year of his life. Through Foundation4Love, Mary is able to continue honoring Justin by helping to bring hope and smiles to patients and their families living with a cancer diagnosis.
