Review for CANCER FOR COLLEGE, Vista, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Cancer for College granted me a $4,000 perpetual scholarship (a total of $16,000) in 2005 when I was starting my freshman year of college at University of the Pacific in Stockton, CA. I was diagnosed with cancer in 2002 when I was 15 years old. At that time, my plans for the future were put on hold as I endured a year of chemotherapy and radiation treatments to save my life. By the time I graduated from high school, I was cancer free and had maintained a 3.9 GPA in spite of my year in the hospital. I was excited to begin the next chapter of my young adult life. After beating cancer, I thought nothing could possibly keep me from accomplishing my goals. Unfortunately, a new obstacle now threatened my plans. My family's savings had been wiped out with the co-pays for medications, scans, appointments and constant travel to the hospital. I was thrilled to find Cancer for College while searching for scholarships and could not have imagined the impact this organization would have on my life. Because of the financial aid I received from Cancer for College, I was able to afford the college experience for which I had worked so hard. I'm honored to know Craig and Stacy Pollard and to be a Cancer for College scholarship recipient.
