"We're thrilled to offer a scholarship to a determined student who is pursuing their education despite the challenges that come with RSD," says law firm founder Steven R. Adams.
CINCINNATI, OH, April 28, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Law Offices of Steven R. Adams is offering an annual $1,000 college scholarship to a qualified student diagnosed with reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD).
The scholarship is in recognition of a family member of one of the staff at the law firm. Paralegal Jen Blum's daughter, McKenzie, was diagnosed with RSD, which is also known as complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), in high school.
Sufferers of RSD experience intense chronic pain that is disproportionate to the injury that causes the pain.
"Support is crucial to anybody affected by RSD," says Jen. "Friends and family provide emotional support. Medical professionals give RSD patients the care they need. And we hope this scholarship helps somebody affected by RSD pay for a college education."
McKenzie graduated with honors from Good Samaritan College of Nursing in 2016, earning her RN degree.
"We're thrilled to offer a scholarship to a determined student who is pursuing their education despite the challenges that come with RSD," says law firm founder Steven R. Adams. "And we're pleased to offer this scholarship in honor of McKenzie, whose story of going to school and earning her RN degree all while dealing with RSD is so inspiring."
Interested students can review the eligibility requirements on the Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) Scholarship page. The scholarship is open to students diagnosed with RSD who currently attend a college or university, as well as to high school students who have been accepted to a college or university.
