About the Chalik & Chalik Injury Lawyers Cancer Survivors Scholarship
The purpose of the scholarship is to help those whose lives were upended by a debilitating disease.
“It takes toughness and dogged determination to continue on after a cancer diagnosis,” said attorney Debi Chalik, who has had two family members diagnosed with cancer. “The cancer battle is one of the hardest battles that anybody will experience. A lot of cancer patients develop new outlooks and motivations to help other people.”
The scholarship will recognize a deserving student who not only survived a devastating illness but now demonstrates a commitment to helping others diagnosed with cancer or another serious illness.
“We want this scholarship to reward a student devoted to turning their experience fighting cancer into something that helps others,” said attorney Jason Chalik.
