Cancer for College (CFC) was founded in 1994 by Craig Pollard, a two-time cancer survivor, to raise scholarship dollars to assist cancer survivors in reaching their goal of a college education. Craig fought back from Hodgkin's disease when he was just 15. He won his second battle at age 19, after a bone marrow transplant at the City of Hope Medical Center and vowed to make a difference. Last year, Cancer for College staged five fundraising events and awarded more than $250,000 in scholarships to cancer survivors and amputees.
"Knowing that I would ultimately return to college after my bone marrow transplant gave me the strength to keep fighting. It gave me a reason to live," said Pollard. To help provide others with this inspiration, he created Cancer for College.
