2020 Canceling Cancer Scholarship


Cancer is a disease that can have a devastating impact on an individual’s life as well as their friends and family. This is why the attorneys at Doran & Murphy are excited to offer the Canceling Cancer Scholarship. 

This scholarship is intended to assist those who have been impacted by cancer, whether you have been diagnosed yourself or you were directly impacted by the cancer diagnosis of a family member or close friend. We hope that this scholarship will serve as a beacon of hope for cancer survivors and those impacted by this terrible disease while contributing to their educational goals. One student will be selected to receive this $1,000 award.

We believe that sharing our stories provides inspiration for those facing this difficult time and can help generate awareness and encourage others to get involved in the fight against cancer. In a 750-1,000 word essay explain your experience with cancer and how that experience changed you as a person. How have you used the experience as motivation?
