Elias Coulas has been a scholarship recipient for the past four years. He was diagnosed with T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia at 4 years old and is currently 22 studying to be an oncology pharmacist. Elias reflects on his experience, “The Beyond the Cure Scholarship Program has helped me cover the financial costs of my undergraduate education and will now help me to pay for pharmacy school. Not only has the National Children’s Cancer Society assisted me financially, but it has also allowed me to connect with other survivors to share stories and life experiences.”
