The Melissa Boston Memorial Scholarship Fund was established to honor the memory of Melissa Boston. In January 2019, Melissa tragically lost her battle with cancer at the age of 36. A loving mother and daughter from New York, Melissa was an inspiration to those who knew her. She touched the lives of those in her community, inspiring others through her brave fight against cancer. The Boston Family has created this scholarship fund to give resources to African American women earning their education with the hope that they will engage in cancer awareness campaigns and serve their community.
