About the model. Isaiah is nothing short of a rock star. This was taken by on the day that he had a big sarcoma type tumor removed from his chest wall. He has long since recovered and is poised to do amazing things!
When Dr. Scott Porter, a sarcoma surgeon, and his friends Marshall and Laura Johnson got together to discuss making an impact on the world through charity, an idea was born.
Scott had both an MD and an MBA, so his business sensibilities and compassion were uniquely aligned in a way rarely found in clinical practice. Marshall was an entrepreneur having built several companies involved in the textile industry with a deep understanding of the logistics of the business. Laura was transitioning from a career in education to consulting while handling the marketing for another start up. Together, they have grown Just Cause Scrubs, a nationally influential and impactful concept that marries the professional expertise and philanthropic efforts of its founders.

But the story goes deeper. Scott and the Johnsons met through Marshall and Laura’s son, Thomas who was mentored by Scott for his senior thesis on osteosarcoma, a very rare and deadly cancer that just happened to be Scott’s specialty. The families shared stories of friends and loved ones who battled cancer and other diseases, and the concept of Just Cause Scrubs came into being both as an idea…and a passion project. It has brought them together with zealotry and focus that’s truly palpable when you speak with them.
Scott has taken his medical industry connections, Marshall has taken his background in sourcing and running small businesses, and Laura has taken her organizational and marketing interests, and together they have created a company with a clear mission, low costs, and a powerful story that can truly change the world, one set of scrubs at a time.
