The Cancer for College Story
Cancer for College was founded in 1993 by two-time cancer survivor and double amputee Craig Pollard. Since inception, the charity has awarded over 1,400 need-based scholarships totaling more than $3.5 million in awards to high-achieving cancer survivors. This video was produced and directed for the charity by scholarship recipient and current filmmaker Ashley Eakin. This is our story.
