The Lehigh Valley Academy Mini-THON 2017 participants are joining more than 90,000 students in a powerful movement to conquer childhood cancer.
In the U.S., more children die from cancer than any other disease, with 16,000 kids diagnosed every year. We are working to change this by partnering with Four Diamonds to conquer childhood cancer through superior care, comprehensive support, and innovative research.
With the help of people like you, Four Diamonds supports more than 80 pediatric oncology research professionals at Penn State College of Medicine who conduct the full spectrum of cancer research. Having a better understanding of how cancer works will help us to develop new, more effective treatments, which we are able to then test by conducting clinical trials. The Four Diamonds Pediatric Cancer Research Center is not only benefiting children at Penn State Children's Hospital, but our work is also benefiting children and their families around the world.
