Students advocating for students

My name is Rosanna D. Clark, and I am a six-year breast cancer survivor, community leader, LMC student and LMCAS Treasurer. On Saturday,October 12, 2013, LMCAS is hosting a free breast cancer conference called Fighting in the Fight against Breast Cancer. This is one big step we are taking to give back to the community and help others facing this disease. This event will provide valuable information about breast cancer treatment, prevention, and support, as well as establish two new scholarships on campus. These scholarships will support: (1) a cancer survivor, and (2) a student currently undergoing cancer treatment. By providing these scholarships, we’ll be allowing students to focus their energy on their recovery and not have to worry about one more thing like paying for college while battling cancer.
Please support our efforts to make college easier for two members of our community touched by cancer. Many go through this experience alone, but no one should. I am working hard to provide that feeling of positive support to others that I found while battling cancer. We may one day live in a world without cancer, but until then, we should continue Fighting in the Fight and do all we can to help others win their battles with this terrible disease.
