Emily Morrow Finkell Partners with FCIF to Launch New Grant Program
Dalton, GA, October 19, 2020-In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, Emily Morrow Finkell, CEO of Emily Morrow Home and 17 year survivor of breast cancer, has pledged to start and fund the new EMF Grant Fund at the Floor Covering Industry Foundation (FCIF).
The fund will help support floorcovering families when one of the family members has a catastrophic medical condition, and the family also has a child who is a college-bound high school senior or already in college. Finkell has firsthand knowledge of the challenges of a life-threatening medical condition and has a passion for helping families with similar situations. Donations to the EMF Grant Fund will be administered by the FCIF Grant Committee to help pay for a family’s medical care, medications, medical supplies, and other expenses such as food, shelter and utilities.
At age 35, Finkell was diagnosed with breast cancer. A single mother of two, Finkell balanced a corporate career while caring for her young children, and herself, during the harrowing treatments. This experience led her to start the Kiker Morrow Finkelll Foundation for Cancer Care.
