Jimmy Fowkes 2013 PDF Print E-mail

Jimmy Fowkes (20) is entering his third year as a religious studies major at Stanford University. Jimmy was first diagnosed with pediatric brain cancer at age 13. He dealt with recurrences at ages 15, 17 and 19, and at the time of his application, was undergoing a month-long course of brain and spine radiation.  At the end of 2011, when his cancer came back for the fourth time, he was forced to under get yet another brain surgery. In 2012, the cancer spread to his spine, and until recently he remained in college full time. He was able to do so despite taking 28 pills a day, managing numerous side effects and leaving campus up to three times a month for treatments.  Jimmy is a relentless cancer advocate. Since 20166, he has raised over $230,000 for the Lance Armstrong Foundation. He founded and organized the “Shooting for a Cure” basketball tournament.  During his 7 ½ years of living with cancer, Jimmy has strived to set an example for others and to show them that despite cancer, you can still achieve your dreams. We are proud that Jimmy is the only four-time award winner in the history of the National Collegiate Cancer Foundation.
