Briana's Journey to find a cure!

My name is Briana and this is my 3rd year at Marymount University.  I am a Biology/Pre-med major hoping to work in Cancer Research.  I am not sure how she did it, but despite being a single-parent, losing her job and not really getting any help, my mother has made it possible for me to continue my education with limited resources for the past 2 and a half years while still helping my older brother and raising my younger sister.  My mother has taken her retirement, maxed out on her student loans, gotten help from her friends and appealed to the schools review board.  My father has helped as well but they are not in a position to continue helping me.  My school has offered all the financial assistance possible after numerous financial aid appeals from my mother.  These appeals have resulted in over $10,000 in grants and scholarships to be split between the two semesters.  I am currently working two jobs to pay for food, my car note and insurance.  At this point through all our efforts I am in jeopardy of not being able to return to school next semester.  Any donation would be helpful in my journey to finish my education, help find a cure for cancer and other life-threatening diseases and making myself and my parents proud.
