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. We help bridge the gap between cancer and college, one scholarship at a time.
Every year there are over 70,000 young adults between the ages of 15 and 39 years old who are diagnosed with cancer. Between the years 2016 and 2020, the cumulative student debt among this college bound population will be over $5 billion dollars. Join us in our effort to award $1,000,000 in scholarships by 2020.
