Jessica

2021 Youth Education Award Recipient

Jessica Rosenbloom – Thornhill, ON
Honours Bachelor of Health Sciences at the University of Ottawa
Diagnosed with a Low Grade Glioma at age 10
Generously funded by Deys Fabricating

I am honoured to be a recipient of the 2021 Youth Education Awards! I would like to thank Deys Fabricating for the incredibly generous donation that made this possible.
 
Since my brain tumour diagnosis seven years ago, I went through numerous surgeries, rounds of chemotherapy and countless complications – obstacles I thought would prohibit me from pursuing post-secondary education. Now, I am gearing up for my first year at the University of Ottawa to study Health Sciences, all while living with an inoperable brain tumour and secondary conditions from my tumour and its treatments.
 
Thanks to Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada and the generosity of Deys Fabricating, I am able to begin my journey towards achieving my ultimate goal of entering the fields of research and medicine while easing the financial burden, for which I am eternally grateful!
