Proceeds will help fund the Charlotte Ollinger Hopper Scholarship, as well as the GYN Cancers Alliance.

Charlotte Hopper, an adjunct English professor at MSSU, was diagnosed with Stage III-C ovarian cancer in March 2012. After surgery and chemotherapy proved successful in her fight against cancer, her family decided to create a scholarship to help ease the burden of students facing a similar situation.

The scholarship is available to full- or part-time students who possess a minimum 2.5 GPA and are a cancer patient, survivor or the dependent of a patient or survivor within the last five years.
