A loving daughter, conscientious student, and good natured child, Chloe was the picture of health. But after complaining of blurred vision, a trip to the doctor resulted in a devastating, life changing prognosis. Chloe, then just eight years old, was diagnosed with Medulloblastoma, a malignant brain tumor and needed life-saving surgery right away.
For over a decade, Chloe endured multiple surgeries, radiation therapies, chemotherapy and most unfortunately, four relapses. To this day, she undergoes MRI brain scans every three months. She has been treated in Vietnam, Singapore, New York City and now in Boston at Dana Farber. However, her ongoing battle has not dampened her spirit – especially when it comes to pursuing her college education.
Chloe is the proud recipient of The Lester Morse Memorial Scholarship at Two Ten and is currently attending Massachusetts College of Art and Design. She has managed to overcome many obstacles and with a lot of hard work, continues to receive good grades in school despite her ongoing cancer treatment. She is immensely thankful to Two Ten for helping her achieve her dream of obtaining a college education.
Chloe has overcome many obstacles in her young age but chooses to share her story to help inspire others. She concluded her scholarship application essay with the following: “My name is Chloe Hewitt. I am a survivor. I will not be defined by my disease.”
