My Hometown Heroes is a 501(c)3 organization designed to provide scholarships for young adult cancer survivors between the ages of 17 and 39. Our mission is to financially assist and recognize these amazing individuals who are pursuing a college education. Through community outreach, collaboration, and creativity we inspire with stories of hope and progress.
Every year there are over 70,000 young adults between the ages of 15 and 39 years old who are diagnosed with cancer. Between the years 2016 and 2020, the cumulative student debt among this college bound population will be over $5 billion. Join us in our effort to award $1,000,000 in scholarships by 2020.
