Cammie Hall Sanders Memorial Scholarship Award

We are delighted to announce this new memorial scholarship honoring the life of Cammie Hall Sanders, a devoted mother, wife, daughter, sister and friend who passed away in 2023 after a courageous twelve-year battle with breast cancer. 

This award will be presented to a local Chester County high school senior whose high school experience has been personally impacted by a parent/guardian’s battle with cancer. We hope that by awarding this scholarship we can honor Cammie’s memory and spirit, while providing financial assistance to someone deserving. If you know of someone who meets the criteria for this scholarship, please share this opportunity with them and encourage them to apply.  Please email us at info@connectthrucancer.org with any questions.

other programs or as stand alone offerings. Programming varies. Please check our Events Calendar for upcoming program information.
