I am trying to raise money so I can attend Cornell University's Summer College. Thank you so much for your time and consideration. God Bless

Hi,

Thank you for taking the time to visit my page. The reason why I am looking for help it to attend Cornell University's Summer College. I was just recently accepted into the program of Science. This summer I have the chance to join other students and learn about medicine and science in Cornell's very own labs and even visit local hospitals. I am really excited about this opportunity and can only imagine what this experience would be like.

Unfortunately, I probably can't attend. You see, my mom has raised myself and her other four kids all by herself. My "father" walked out on my family and I when I was very small. He has never been child support nor will he ever. We are barely making it and its really hard most of the time. However, I do manage to stay on top of my studies and pursue my dream of becoming a doctor. This has been a dream of mine since I was very very young. I remember asking Santa Claus for a lab coat and Band -Aid instead of a Barbie or other toys. I used to play pretend doctor on my brothers and I would spend hours keeping busy in my pretend E.R.

This is why I am so thrilled and appreciative that I have been accepted to attend this once in a lifetime program. I usually can't go on these trip or trips at all because of my family's extremely limited financial situation. I know I should be grateful to have even been offered this experience and I am, but I just hope I am able to attend as well.

I know I am asking complete strangers to help, but I really dont have anyone else to turn to. I cant express enough how much this experience would mean to me and how much I hope I am able to go. To be honest, I cant do much and I hope I dont have to face the fact that I still wont.

I really dont have anyone else to turn to and I am hoping someone is able to help me, even if it just a little. I wouldnt be so desperate if this was just one of those school trips, but to me this is really important and significant. I will get the chance to express my goal of helping others in the future and becoming the leader I want to be. This trip would mean so much to me.

I am forever grateful to all of you who have viewed my page and have taken the time to read a bit of my story. If you would like to learn more (believe there is alot!) please feel free to email me at carlabs86@aol.com. I can answer any questions you may have. I actually feel a little selfish asking for this type of funding when there are other heartbreaking stories out there, but I hope you can understand a bit of who I am and who I plan to be and why this is so important to me.

Thank you all for your time and consideration

God Bless
