Fontana Herald News — Jennifer (Jenny) Escorza, a 17-year-old high school senior from Fontana who was diagnosed with myeloid sarcoma, knows firsthand the struggles of cancer. She also, however, understands the importance of staying hopeful and determined.
Escorza’s hard work paid off as she has been accepted to Cal State San Bernardino, where she will begin classes this in September.
When Make-A-Wish Orange County and the Inland Empire offered to grant Escorza a single wish, she wished for financial assistance for college. Her wish came true on June 10, when Make-A-Wish Orange County and the Inland Empire presented her with her gift during the CSUSB Latino Graduate Recognition Ceremony.
