Impacted by breast cancer

Martha Dickinson was a beloved mother and dedicated elementary school teacher who sadly developed metastatic breast cancer that spread to her bones. 

Martha was a fighter and taught her second-grade class until treatments became too much. While Martha sadly passed away, technological advances have drastically improved the prognosis of those diagnosed with breast cancer. Creating awareness, getting to know one’s family history, and engaging in routine screening play key factors in the fight against and prevention of breast cancer. When it comes to health, knowledge truly is power. 

This scholarship seeks to honor the memory of Martha Dickinson by supporting students who have been impacted by breast cancer.

Any high school or undergraduate student in Maryland who has at least a 3.0 GPA may apply for this scholarship opportunity if their life has been touched by the diagnosis or passing of a loved one due to cancer.

To apply, tell us how cancer has affected your life, what steps can be taken to prevent cancer and detect it early, and why you think you deserve this scholarship.
