Shirley Enrico was a military wife and mother of two. She was use to surviving on her own terms throughout the military lifestyle raising children and keeping everyone safe and cared for at home. It was with her strength that she fought her eight year cancer journey that started with breast cancer, then diagnosed with colon cancer and lost her battle with bladder cancer.
She was very quiet and reserved with her fight and the toll it took on her. Her youngest daughter Rebecca an Oncology Certified Massage Therapist and Skin Care therapist tried to provide a healing loving touch, however, her mother asked that she instead take her skills and use them to help other families that might need them during their journey. It was with that promise that Rebecca with the support of her father and sister opened the Shirley Enrico Foundation for Oncology Support. To bring together the promise to her mother, her skills with oncology certified therapeutic touch and the growing needs of families during the journey.
