Jeremy P. Wilson
Congratulations to the 2013 Scholarship Recipients:
On August 29, 2007, at the age of 10, Jeremy was diagnosed with undifferentiated sarcoma of the liver with lung metastases after just three weeks of symptoms. Sarcoma is a very rare and severe form of cancer in both children and adults. His chances of survival at diagnosis were only 17-20% (1 in 5). Jeremy bravely endured 13 months of increasingly difficult treatments, including chemotherapy and its side effects and multiple surgeries.
Sadly, Jeremy lost his cancer battle on October 5, 2008 at the age of 11 1/2, partially due to limited research and treatment options available for this rare type of cancer, and partially due to inadequate government funding allocated for childhood cancer research.
Jeremy fought his disease with great strength, grace, courage and determination, always maintaining his wonderful, positive, goal seeking attitude and keeping his beautiful smile intact. He lived his 11 1/2 years to the fullest. Jeremy was a very special and remarkable boy, who truly loved his family, friends, school and life itself. He left this world much too young and much too soon. Jeremy has become a true inspiration to everyone who knew him, even those who have only heard his story.
