In the heart of our mission lies a story of love, loss, and unwavering determination. The Shamika Walker Foundation was born out of a mother's love and a daughter's legacy, a testament to the power of resilience in the face of adversity.
Meet Felicia Ellis, the founder of our foundation, a woman whose life took an unexpected turn in 2017 when her beloved daughter, Shamika Walker, was diagnosed with HPV. It was a diagnosis that came with little information, few options, and a stark absence of hope. Tragically, within weeks, Shamika found herself in the throes of stage 4 Cervical Cancer, a battle she fought valiantly but ultimately succumbed to. Left behind were five children and a mother determined to ensure that others would not face the same fate.
Felicia's unwavering commitment to her daughter's memory and her desire to make a difference have given birth to The Shamika Walker Foundation. At its core, our foundation is driven by the belief that information and access to resources can save lives.
