About the  Mesothelioma scholarship – History

The Mesothelioma.com Scholarship is for students who’ve faced cancer, not just mesothelioma. It started in 2015 to support students affected by cancer, inspired by Heather Von St. James, a mesothelioma survivor, and her husband Cameron. They went to college after Heather’s diagnosis.

The scholarship gives $4,000 yearly to a student impacted by cancer, aiming to help with their education expenses.

Mesothelioma.com wants to hear the stories of those who have fought cancer or have close loved ones who did.

Heather Von St. James, who survived pleural mesothelioma, shared:

“When I got sick, everything changed. I had to stop working at my salon. Cameron, my husband, decided to go back to school to make things better for our family, especially with our new baby.

We really believe in learning more, even though it’s hard to manage family, work, and school, especially with me being sick. It’s tough, but it’s worth it. I hope this scholarship can help someone going through a tough time.”
