I want to start a scholarship for myself to attend Texas Tech University where I will go on to pursue my newfound dream of becoming a nurse. Having cancer has been very stressful on my family physically, mentally, and financially. Long stays in the hospital and multiple visits weekly to see my doctor have been stressful and costly. Any donation is greatly appreciated and will not go unnoticed! I have attached to this my essay that I wrote for my admissions into Texas Tech. I feel as though it intails everything I have gone through and the many struggles I have had to endure. My goal of $20,000 is for just one year of school. Thank you for you help and support.
