I, Anna Lewis, am currently a senior at Woodville High School struggling with future college fees. At 16 years old my dream seemed to be shattered when I was diagnosed with end stage renal failure and was hospitalized at Texas Children's Hospital in Houston, TX. The admission caused me to miss about 3 months of school, which was devestating to me. I had always strived to make As and Bs in all of my classes and it was difficult to do so while going to Houston for dialysis every other day. I was very fortunate to only have to be on the transplant list for 9 months and therefore only having to be on dialysis for 9 months. However, the medical bills and money put forth to the trips to and from Texas Children's Hospital made going to a good college almost impossible. I worked extremely hard in school and have excelled in classes that are difficult for any student, let alone for a student who misses school due to health problems. I struggled, but succeeded to keep my averages in the high Bs and high As. At the end of the year I became a member of the National Honor Society.My hard work continued to pay off through my junior and senior years. I am now in the top quartile of my class and have been accepted into the National University of Ireland in Maynooth, Ireland. I plan to get a business degree and open a restaraunt one day. My mother (whom I live with) only made $504 last year. We are clearly not capable of making this money on our own. I worked extremely hard to get accepted into this school and I refuse to give up this opportunity. I have been dreaming about going to school in Ireland since I was 8 years old.  I have put everything I have into this dream and I need help. I cannot do this on my own. I have done everything until now on my own. Every dollar could make a difference, please do not overlook this
