INTIMIDATING. CONFUSING. OVERWHELMING.
Many students and their families feel like this during the college admission process. Add cancer into the mix and it becomes even more so.
Missed deadlines or incomplete paperwork can mean the difference between being accepted to college or receiving financial aid. Imagine trying to tackle all of this while dealing with a cancer diagnosis or having a parent with cancer.
The average high school student is busy with school, homework, family and friends. Add long drives to treatments, managing medical appointments and double homework due to missed school. Or If you are a parent diagnosed with cancer dealing with the effects of chemo, managing appointments and possibly not being there for your student during the college application process. Applying for college stops feeling like a priority in life. Some students are successful on their own, some just give up.
