Claudia Favela

Spring, Texas

Claudia Favela, 18, of Spring, Texas, a senior at Klein High School, created and leads a community outreach team committed to childhood cancer awareness, and has dedicated hundreds of hours to mentoring and organizing social events for patients, collecting movies to donate to hospitals, raising money for research, and educating others about the lack of funding for childhood cancer research. A survivor of osteosarcoma, Claudia’s volunteer efforts are inspired by a friend who died from cancer in 2017.
