Benjamin Venezia Memorial Scholarship
Benjamin was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia two weeks after celebrating his 13th birthday. During his 9 month battle, he held on to the hope that he would defeat cancer. Benjamin planned his future, shared his dreams, hoped and prayed that his friends and family would never know cancer or experience his pain, suffering, and fears. Benjamin will always be remembered as thoughtful, loving, caring, witty, and wise beyond his years. His death has left a void in the hearts of those who love and miss him
