Our Program

Education played an important role in Amber's life and she found great comfort in reading and learning. Though she was ill her entire life, it never prevented her from attending school. She went all 12 years at Pen Argyl Area School District and was engaged in many activites. While many critically ill children decide to homeschool for various reasons the ones who attend face many additional challenges besides the merely physical aspects. Amber paved the way with her courage and pereseverance for those who would follow her. Once graduating High School she was focused on College. She entered Muhlenberg College and was a psychology major. She graduated with her Bachelors degree on time in May 2013. 

In honor of her heroic battle and the decision to use her degree to help other sick children we have established three scholarships. The first is a $500 Memorial Scholarship to a student at Immaculate Conception School. The second is a $500 Memorial Scholaraship to a graduatig senior at Pen Argyl High School. The last $500 Memorial Scholarship wil be awards to a psychology major who has a focus on children services.
