Stef touched the lives of many through her smile, grace, kindness, motivation and faith. She was soothing and caring – putting her children first, always, but yet always seeming to have time for others. A phrase that echoed through her home is “Do your best,” as she would encourage each one of her kids with this phrase, no matter the activity.
Part of Stef Ripple’s mission is to support the children and families of ovarian cancer warriors. In support of this effort we have established the Stef Ripple Do Your Best Scholarship. The emotional and financial support Stef’s children and family received during her journey was comforting and reassuring. This scholarship is for Maryland students enrolling in a Maryland college whose lives have been touched by ovarian cancer.
Currently we are accepting applications for Fall 2022. The application deadline is June 1, 2022. A committee, which will include Stef’s children, will review the applications and announce the recipient(s) by the end of June.
