OUR OURCAUSE CAUSE

The Scott Hunter Scholarship Fund was born out of a wife’s love after her husband’s death. Wesley Scott Hunter was stricken with an extremely rare disease called PMP. Lifetime odds of being diagnosed with PMP are about 1 in a million worldwide. It was difficult to comprehend how such a vibrant, well-loved, and dedicated leader to his career, ministry, family and community could be afflicted with a debilitating orphan disease as acknowledged by The National Association of Rare Disorders. Based upon this recognition, Scott’s family and friends understood that he was called through the gospel so that he may obtain the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ as referenced in 2 Thessalonians 2:14. Scott was a beacon of light for all those who knew him. He exemplified a level of strength during the most critical points of his life that many who shared his final days had firsthand experience of his level of faith. Those who knew him would often hear him proclaim 2 Corinthians 12:9....”My grace is sufficient; my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly will I rather glory in my infirmities that the power of Christ may rest upon me”. SO WHAT IS PMP? PMP is an abbreviation for Pseudomyxoma Peritonei. (Pronounced as SOO-doh-mix-OH-muh PAYR-ihTOH-nee-I) Pseudomyxoma Peritonei is a rare condition characterized by mucous produced by tumor cells in

implants in the abdominal cavity. Sometimes patients present themselves with symptoms arising from the primary tumor mimicking appendicitis. As PMP progresses, the excessive mucous accumulation causes compression of the intestines as the gastrointestinal function is compromised and eventually obstruction is imminent. Consequently, PMP always result in the death of the patient unless radically treated. Although, our beloved Scott didn’t survive this disease, his memory lives on.

PL

CONTINUING THE LEGACY Chief Scott Hunter was a fighter indeed. He withstood 2 major surgical procedures and continued working, serving, and living life to his full potential. As a result, his family and friends have established the Scott Hunter Scholarship Fund to continue his example of commitment, endurance, and staying power. The scholarships are designed to provide an opportunity for young minds to receive a quality education who would not otherwise be able to without your support. Scott was a big dreamer. Your contributions will aid children in fulfilling their dreams and inspiring them to never give up. And finally, it is our goal to create an awareness and desire amongst children and their families to join us in finding a cure for this life threatening disease. Therefore, we ask that you partner with Scott’s family and friends as we endeavor to keep Scott’s fight and will to live alive.
