“As a struggling single mother it is hard to make ends meet and I thought I’d have to drop out due to a lack of funds.  As a second year nursing student, it would have been devastating not to be able to finish after all of the hard work it took to get this far.  Your support enabled me to complete my degree and pursue my dreams for myself and my family.”
