About the Scholarship
DJ Mojica was a Fern Bluff Bobcat who lived his life with the utmost bravery and determination. In his short 9 years he taught us what true perseverance looks like. DJ was diagnosed with a malignant PNET brain tumor at 17 months old. Against incredible odds, DJ beat cancer a miraculous 4 times with God’s help. He fought hard every day through his cancer treatments, physical therapy, educational delays and all the late effects of treatments that eventually took his life.
If you had the pleasure of knowing DJ you will remember his sweet voice, witty humor and love for the Dallas Cowboys. DJ loved being around people who lifted him up. Many of his fondest memories and treasured moments involved family and community. Both of which were crucial for DJ to have the opportunity to experience all of life’s joy by way of their much-needed assistance. The village of helpful nonprofits, various volunteers, assistance programs, therapists, and medical professionals as well as dear friends and family were instrumental in nurturing not only DJ, but our entire family unit.
Through DJ’s journey, he touched the lives of so many with his infectious optimism and remarkable faith. Our hope is that we are able to bless a deserving recipient and leave a fingerprint of DJ’s impactful life on their heart. The funds received from your generous contributions will be used to empower a Round Rock ISD graduate with a past or present cancer diagnosis or have had an influential impact on a child diagnosed with cancer. The recipient must have first-hand experience over a course of time to relate to the challenges a person battling cancer faces as well as the long-term effects of treatments.
