The Marcia Peterson Memorial Fund

We lost our dear friend Marcia on March 5, 2016, at age 46, after an 11 month battle with Triple Negative Breast Cancer which had metastasized to her lungs, liver, and bones. Marcia was a founding Board Member and Treasurer of this small but mighty nonprofit and the Immediate Impact Breast Cancer Walk, something of which she was immensely proud.


For over 12 years, Marcia dedicated herself to the breast cancer cause which was near and dear to her.  In 2003 she participated in her first Avon Walk for Breast Cancer and Susan G. Komen 3 Day walk in honor of her mother Gen.  Year after year, she walked, raised money, cheered and encouraged others. Even during her treatment, Marcia participated in the Immediate Impact Breast Cancer Walk by raising money and supporting the community of women to which she was so devoted.

Through this we fund will continue to celebrate Marcia's effervescent laugh and a life well lived.
