I am honored to run for Mr. Hempfield this year to raise money for the Four Diamonds.
What you may not know (at least I didn't!) is that "the Four Diamonds mission is to conquer childhood cancer by assisting children and their families through superior care, comprehensive support and innovative research.
Four Diamonds covers 100 percent of all medical expenses related to cancer care not covered by insurance for eligible Four Diamonds children. Because of the community's steady and generous support, Four Diamonds has assisted 100 percent of the childhood cancer patients who have been treated at Penn State Children's Hospital. "
I am taking a stand against childhood cancer by joining more than 90,000 Mini-THON® students who are fundraising for Four Diamonds.
In the U.S., more children die from cancer than any other disease, with 16,000 kids diagnosed every year. But Four Diamonds ensures that every child they treat, regardless of income, receives the highest quality of cancer care without ever seeing a bill for that care.
Four Diamonds also supports the latest breakthroughs in research to benefit children around the world. Having a better understanding of how cancer works will help Four Diamonds’ researchers develop new, more effective treatments to test through clinical trials and save more lives.
But Four Diamonds needs your help to conquer childhood cancer. Please support my efforts to save more kids fighting cancer by making a donation today.
