Why It Started
The Cherry Place Foundation was founded by Phyllis Fennell, a native to Jacksonville, Florida and a long time employee in the medical health field. Although a 9 year breast cancer survivor, Phyllis knows first-hand and still understands how it feels to hear those deafening words from your doctor as well as the struggle of moving forward. It has since been her mission to support cancer patients in ways that may be overlooked by healthcare providers, insurance companies, and other professionals in the community.
