Carson Higgins would have been a junior at Revere High. Diagnosed at the age of three with neuroblastoma, Carson embraced life with kindness and courage. During his 12 years, he inspired others to live their lives fully, with purpose, a sense of humor, love, faith, and generosity.
“Carson faced adversity with peace and grace. He inspired so many to be kind and loving, regardless of their circumstances. We are proud to continue his spirit of compassion by awarding these scholarships to students who have demonstrated leadership, generosity, and faith. We encourage them to continue living life with these values,” said Debbie Higgins, founder of CHMF.
