Battle Born in Reno Nevada, My Hometown Heroes is a national scholarship fund for college bound cancer survivors enrolled in universities, community colleges, and trade schools. Our mission is to help bridge the gap between cancer and college, one scholarship at a time.
Every year there are over 77,000 young adults between the ages of 15 and 39 years old who are diagnosed with cancer. It’s one of the most overlooked and underserved populations in our country today as our scholarship candidates project an average student debt of $50,000 or more upon college graduation.
Through the power of creativity, community, and collaboration we inspire with stories of hope and progress.
