And “affected by cancer” applies not only to cancer patients & cancer survivors, but also to children of cancer patients or survivors & to students who have lost a parent to cancer.
Check out these amazing, FREE resources that will connect you to the different scholarship opportunities… (please note: different sites may list different opportunities)
