Marjorie, a lifelong educator, learner and artist, succumbed to ovarian cancer on September 15, 2014. She was a wife, mother of seven, grandmother and Associate Dean of the Biology at Brown University. Marjorie was also an accomplished finger style guitarist/singer/songwriter who released many CDs and instructional videos, toured extensively and taught at the Fur Peace Ranch.
An early pioneer of scalp cooling therapy, Marjorie kept her hair during chemo by using cold caps. She was passionate about this cause and helped countless cancer patients preserve their dignity and privacy during chemotherapy. Proceeds from this benefit concert will be donated to these worthy cold cap organizations: The Rapunzel Project (rapunzelproject.org) and Cold Caps Assistance Projects (ccaps.org). If you cannot attend the show, but would still like to donate to this great cause you can write a check to:
