Matthew Ortiz Leadership Scholarship

Please donate $10 to this scholarship fund in memory of my close friend, Matt Ortiz. Matt was an administrator for this cause and a very active supporter of CCC. He passed away last week after a long battle with Hodgkin's Lymphoma. He had just turned 24.

Please donate directly to his scholarship through this link:

The Matthew Ortiz Leadership Scholarship will be given in July 2008 to a childhood cancer survivor for college. I hope that the Ortiz family will select the recipient. 100% of donations will be used for this scholarship. If you would like to make a donation through the mail, please email me ([email protected]). The scholarship will be given annually in honor of Matt. Matt was passionate about supporting cancer survivors with their college education and has made an incredible impact on countless lives through Carolyn's Compassionate Children.

Thank you so much for your support.
