The Scarcelli Family Foundation
The Scarcelli Family Foundation was created in honor of Rachel Scarcelli who was born with a chronic cardiac condition. During her medical encounters, her parents did their best to support her siblings, James and Nicholas, pouring energy into helping Rachel heal as well as setting aside precious moments to remind her siblings of their importance to their family.
The foundation recognizes the value of the Beads of Courage® Sibling Program, acknowledging the bravery and courage of brothers and sisters which is an important component of healing.
The Scarcelli Family Foundation is proud to sponsor the Beads of Courage Sibling Program. It is our hope that by using this program, siblings can find moments of healing and feelings of love.
