Fenov Scholarships Overview

It gives me great pleasure to announce that, together with Jam Kancer,  I will once again be awarding scholarships in memory of my friend, Fenov Pierre-Louis. Fenov was gifted in many ways. Despite battling Stage 4 Neuroblastoma kancer for much of his life,  he always maintained an incredibly positive attitude, always with his trademark smile on his face. His passing on July 18, 2018 devastated all who knew him. While we are saddened deeply by his passing, our commitment to carry forth his message of hope remains.

Fenov maintained an "A" average and was a member of the National Honor Society. He accomplished this despite missing a great deal of time from school due to ongoing treatments. His commitment to his studies was another reason why I admired him. I often find myself wondering what Fenov would be doing now, had kancer not taken him from us. It saddens me to think that our world was deprived of his brilliance because of this vile disease- Fenov was destined for greatness.

Anyone who had the pleasure of hearing or seeing Fenov speak knew that he was wise beyond his years. Despite the incredible obstacles that kancer presented, he always maintained a positive attitude and lived to use his speaking abilities to inspire people to continue the fight against kancer.

Fenov said many brilliant things when speaking, but one thing always stuck with me: “Even the smallest amounts of help and sympathy you can provide to a child with kancer will mean the absolute world.” That quote has always stuck with me, and will remain one of my guiding principles in carrying forth his legacy.

With Fenov’s words and spirit guiding us, we are going to award 5 "Fenov Scholarships" to graduating high school seniors continuing on to college who have "provided help and sympathy" to someone with kancer. Each scholarship will be in the amount of $2,000. To be considered, please submit an essay that is not longer than 250 words, telling us in detail how you went out of your way to provide help and sympathy to a person with kancer.

Thank you and good luck.
