    Does anyone have any information about college scholarships for children of cancer patients?

    Since my mom's cancer diagnosis last yar, money has certainly gotten tight. And I'd prefer not to take out loans for college. Where can I find information about scholarships for people with a parent fighting terminal cancer?
    Thank you

      Thank you for the link Dave (and the question Misha)
      I am dealing with stage IV colon cancer for many years, our finances are strained to say the least, and our 18 yr old son graduates high school this year. He's very bright and is getting some scholarships but the college he'd like to go to is way out of our price range.

      I will try to keep you in the loop with this and post what I find out.

      Misha, go to the Livestrong web site. While applying for peer matching I noticed they had a scholarship section.
