Lisa Fountain founded the non-profit organization, Scarlett's Closet, in memory and honor of her granddaughter, who passed away of cancer in 2011.  

This ministry provides care bags for families whose children are admitted into the hospital unexpectedly. Each bag contains various personal care items, a pen, a journal and a Bible.

In August 2018, Lisa published a book called Courage and Red Wagons. This book is dedicated to Scarlett, who showed Lisa what real courage looks like. Through this ministry, Scarlett is touching more lives than most people do in their entire lifetime.
