Sometimes life presents us with difficult, life-shattering situations. As a personal injury law firm, Norden Leacox Accident & Injury Law sees the difficulties that come with a life-shattering medical diagnosis on a daily basis. While we can help those who have been in a personal injury accident seek justice, it is more difficult to support those who contracted a disease or medical condition in getting the assistance they need.
To help, our firm is happy to announce the Conquering Childhood Cancer Scholarship. As anyone who goes through a medical recovery will tell you, life is full of ups and downs, especially for pediatric cancer patients. We want this to be an opportunity for those who have experienced the impact of childhood cancer to share their story and for this scholarship to serve as a beacon of hope for others.
One applicant will receive a $1,000 award to use towards their educational pursuits. Let this serve as a chance to demonstrate your strength and resiliency in the face of adversity. We thank everyone for taking the time to share a personal story.
