Cat Zingano has been fighting student debt as a donor with Bold.org since January 2021. In that time, she has awarded over $20,000 in scholarships to help students through losses in their lives. When Cat was in her early twenties, her mother was diagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer. When she passed in 2005, Cat had a lot to work through, making it difficult to focus on her education. Less than a year later, Cat’s son was born. Raising a newborn and going to school after recently losing her mom, Cat needed help and remains truly grateful for all the support and resources that were made available to her. After school and finding success in her early MMA career, Cat suffered another tragic loss. When her husband, who had helped guide her career, died in 2014, it was devastating and a very unexpected adjustment. Nothing has been the same for Cat and her son since that loss. And yet, she has no choice but to adapt and move forward. These tragedies have caused Cat to focus on what matters most in her life. She fights through to show her son and other victims of loss that one can't let hardship take over their lives. Cat is an inspiration to many for the fight she displays in all aspects of her life.
