My name is Deondre Brown.  I am 20 years old and going into my junior year of college.  At the age of 15 I lost both of my parents  3 months apart to cancer.  4 months after that my great grandfather passed.  My life has never been the same.  With the help of my older cousin I graduated from high school and was excepted into college.  LIFE has been difficult without my parents.  I was robbed twice at gunpoint for my phone, attacked in the park by 2 young men over a girl, not allowe dattend prom or my graduation due to a school error when I transfered in my last semester of high school. I live with my grandmother and greatgrandmother who both are over 70 and retired and on fixed income.  Paying for college has been very difficult.    

My major is Pharmacy.  I would love to continue my education and graduate from college to make my deceased parents proud.  I  am interested in working in the pharmacuetical field so I can research the medicines used for cancer patients.  After caring for my Mother for a year; my interest peaked about the care and cure for cancer.  I would love to discover a medicine that heals cancer without all of the side effects.  

Inorder to continue my education I need to raise funds to pay off my last semester. I still owe $8,000.  I will be a Junior in the fall and my tuitiun, room and board with books would be $10,000 a semester. I am trying to raise enough money for my Junior and Senior years.  The help I receive would Bless my life enourmously and would allow me to then pay it forward and Bless countless others when I discover a new side effect free medicine for cancer patients.         

Thank You to ALL who would consider Helping ME

Sincerely,   Deondre Brown
