Cancer-stricken Fontana teen’s wish of getting financial aid for college comes true – California News

Jennifer (Jenny) Escorza, a 17-year-old high school senior from Fontana who was diagnosed with myeloid sarcoma, knows firsthand the struggles of cancer.

Despite her deteriorating health and numerous hospital stays, Escorza did not let her hardships impede on her dream of pursuing higher education. She improved her grades when they started to fall after her diagnosis and took the time to apply for college.

Escorza’s hard work paid off as she has been accepted to Cal State San Bernardino, where she will begin classes this in September.
