SWEET MAGNOLIAS CANCER CARE FOUNDATION
The Faces of Our Organization
KAREN ADAMS FOLEY
I started Sweet Magnolias in honor/memory of my mom Diana who lost her battle with lung cancer in 2015. I also am the Co-Chair for Relay for Life of Linwood which raises money for the American Cancer Society. I have been life long friends with each board member and they have all helped me through the loss of my mom. I have been at my job at Spine One for 11 years as Billing/Orthotic Coordinator.
