As advances in medicine have significantly increased the survivorship of pediatric cancer, it is increasingly important to address the potential long-term consequences of childhood cancer and support the life quality of pediatric cancer survivors. A key issue in pediatric cancer survivorship is educational attainment due to irregular school attendance and adverse effects on cognition and academic performance during and after cancer treatment. These cancer survivors have the same goals and aspirations as their peers, yet without adequate support and encouragement, they run the risk of experiencing struggles in pursuing higher education.
 
Established in 2020 with the hope of brightening the days of cancer warriors, The Nguyen Memorial Cancer Relief Foundation is proud to award a $500 scholarship to one student whose life has been impacted and battled cancer at any point in their life, which could be utilized to cover expenses for college textbooks, outstanding tuition balances, living expenses and/or other costs related to their education. Our ultimate is to encourage and support the journey of young cancer survivors and patients in chasing their dreams. To apply please fill our the application form: tinyurl.com/daretodreamscholarship
