(The Woodlands, Texas – August 6, 2018)
The Breast Cancer Charities of America announced that Caroline Frenzel, a 2018 graduate from The Woodlands High School, has been chosen as the recipient of the 2018 iGoPink Scholarship for $15,000. The iGoPink Scholarship is granted to a student, from the Greater Houston Area, whose family has been affected by breast cancer, that is continuing higher education.
“Many patients that we serve reach out stating that they don’t want their breast cancer journey to impact their children. Many fear that the costs of treatment may inhibit the family’s ability to send their child to college,” said Erica Johnson, Founder, and CEO of The Breast Cancer Charities of America. “That’s where the iGoPink Scholarship steps in and assists these local families.”
Caroline’s mother was diagnosed with Stage IV Metastatic Breast Cancer in November of 2016 and her journey continues today with ongoing treatment. Caroline was inspired by her mother’s journey to further her education at The University of Texas at Austin, in hopes to one day start her own non-profit that will provide healthy meals to cancer patients. Caroline was part of the Future Business Leaders of America and the Cross-Country team at The Woodlands High School.
Upon receiving the iGoPink Scholarship, Caroline and her mother will also be featured as iGoPink’s Spotlight Survivor at the 5thannual Wine Women & Shoes event hosted on September 6, 2018, at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott Hotel. This event benefits The Breast Cancer Charities of America and all proceeds will go directly back to the multiple program services BCCA offers.
