Cystic Fibrosis

Since most of the Fashion students and interior design students, who are working with a team are coming from the Salt Lake Community College and are a tremendous help to this event, passing on the following information is important.

  

Amanda

 

Amanda R. has applied for a nationwide scholarship through SOLVAY Pharmaceuticals. She is a finalist in the competition for a college scholarship from the Solvay Scholarship program based on her creativity, academic excellence, community involvement and ability to serve as a positive role model for those with Cystic Fibrosis.

Those applying for the scholarship, must be diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis, an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 children and adults in the United States. Cystic Fibrosis presents extraordinary health burdens for patients and financial challenges for their families.

 

Currently, she is the second finalist out of forty competing for the total scholarship of $17,000. You can help her win by voting for her; there are three ways to vote on the website right here. 

Voting process ends on Oct. 15th ’09.

 

THANKS!
