Paxton Bowe Andrews ~ Warrior Scholarship
May 1st, 2018
Scholarship recipients will be notified by May 18th, 2018.
The PAX Warrior scholarship was established in honor of Paxton Bowe Andrews, and done so to recognize his beautiful soul and his courageous fight against childhood cancer. Paxton never got to experience a first day of school, much less graduate from high school, or realize his many dreams. It is our intention that the recipient of the PAX Warrior Scholarship use their awarded funds to assist in fulfilling a cherished dream.
Regardless of their age, when a child is diagnosed with cancer they are set off on a journey that greatly differs from any adult experience. As a result, the world can be isolating, terrifying, and unbearably painful. While each warrior navigates their diagnosis in a unique way, they all do so with unparalleled grit and unyielding bravery.
We remain inspired by our warriors who continue to persevere, despite a childhood cancer diagnosis. We are further motivated by the young adults who provide support for those directly affected by childhood cancer.
Scholarship Recipient Commitment:
As the years pass on, we ask that the recipient think of Paxton often: say his name, tell his story. Above all else, we hope the recipient will carry Paxton in the safest part of their heart as they roam the world wild and free.
