Welcome to Faces of Courage !

Celebrating 13 Years of Service

We are a non-profit organization located in the Tampa Bay area that offers free camps and events for women,men and children with cancer and blood illnesses. Though we are located in Florida, some of our camps are attended by women, men and children from all over the country. We strive to provide a judgment-free, comfortable atmosphere where women, men and children can relax and just have fun.

We Serve Over 7,800 Families…FREE!

Faces of Courage, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization providing life enriching experiences to kids, women, men and families touched by cancer and/or blood disorders. Faces of Courage is the first organization in the nation to tailor a women’s weekend camp for minority cancer survivors and is considered a leader in minority outreach and education. Current enrollment for programs is over 7,000 families and all programs are provided at no cost (FREE) to the participants.

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.

Please support an ongoing fundraiser for our camp today:
