Our New Endowment:
Dr. Nancy Sandrock’s Legacy Lives On
Thanks to the generous legacy of Dr. Nancy Lee Burns Sandrock, And Then There Were None has been endowed with a scholarship program to help our clients advance their credentials in healthcare. Two recipients are selected from our application process and granted an award paid directly to the educational institutions in which recipients are enrolled. In 2020, we are excited to announce that the two first scholarship awards were given to advance the nursing credentials of two very special clients.
Dr. Nancy Sandrock was a Phoenix native whose work landed her in Laredo, Texas. She passed into eternity on September 9, 2019. She joined her husband James and left behind their 11 children as well as adopted daughter, and 16 grandchildren with more on the way. As a Byzantine Catholic midwife of 20+ years and a labor and delivery nurse prior to that, Nancy shepherded into the world thousands of children in four states. Nancy’s faithful dedication to her vocation spurred her to become a practical resource for low-income women needing maternity and well-woman care with pregnancy resource centers. She opened her own home to unwed teenage mothers, and was a fierce advocate for life as a leader in the Pro-Life Midwives Caucus for ACNM and 40 Days for Life. Her indomitable spirit was unbowed, unbroken, and uninterrupted by her diagnosis with triple-negative cancer, after which she continued to expand her education and influence, graduating with her Doctorate of Nursing Practice in 2017 two years after her cancer had become metastatic, and teaching as a nursing instructor until the month before her death.
Dr. Sandrock loved our ministry and our mission to reach marginalized healthcare workers ensnared by the abortion industry to refocus their skills to heal rather than harm. Her heart for And Then There Were None and our beneficiaries is expressed in her desire to create a scholarship for our clients. The scholarship is established as an endowment fund created in partnership with her children to which additional contributions can be made by donating through our website at this link and adding a note designating the donation to the scholarship fund, or by check with ‘scholarship fund’ on the memo line. The scholarship will be granted to two ATTWN applicants each year.
