The mission of the The Fighting Back Scholarship Program is to recognize and provide scholarships for individuals who are Fighting Back from a life changing injury or illness through courage, desire and perseverance.

Within a medical setting, the patient’s insurance usually covers limited
rehabilitation. Upon the patient’s release, insurance coverage to continue
the rebuilding process is often limited or non-existent. Consequently,
progress for many people often ends when insurance runs out.

The Fighting Back Scholarship Program, (FBSP), was created in 1989 to
assist individuals who have suffered a life-changing illness or injury, and
are without the finances needed to participate in a rehabilitative exercise
program. This rehabilitation helps individuals develop and maintain
mobility and strength, and to increase their confidence.

Our first mission is to provide financial scholarships to be used for individualized exercise rehabilitation. These scholarships are awarded
based on financial need to those who have demonstrated the attributes consistent with our mission statement.

Our mission is also to recognize individuals at our Annual Achievement
Night who have triumphed over a life-changing illness or injury through
their courage, their desire to improve, and their perseverance.
