Jake was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma on the right Tibia in 2009 at the age of 12. He underwent nine months of chemotherapy, plus amputation of a leg. "Jake felt he could over come this" and he received a robotic leg. Pushing forward, he found snowboarding as a passion. He continued to do well in school despite missing a year in junior high school, all of his hard work paid off when he received an acceptance letter at San Francisco State. He is now a freshman there. Congratulations to Jake!

The Friends of Scott Foundation (Friends to Children With Cancer) offers a scholarship each year to cancer patients currently on treatment or to survivors. Education was important to Scott. It was his dream to attend the University of Notre Dame. In his memory FOS offers a scholarship program for individuals who have been diagnosed with childhood cancer. We realize the importance of continuing education and know that pursuing this goal is difficult when given a life-threatening diagnosis.
Our scholarship program is designed to provide funding to survivors who want to continue their education through technical school, vocational school, junior college, or a four-year college or university. For more information on how to apply for the FOS scholarship, please send an e-mail to Barbara Bailey.
