For my fourth year as part of MiniTHON and my last year at Kennett High School, 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. 16,000 kids are diagnosed with this disease every year. Four Diamonds Foundation helps to ensure that families battling childhood cancer have both financial and emotional support throughout the entire process. When a child is diagnosed with cancer, the family's focus should be helping the child fight, not how they are going to pay the bills. Four Diamonds helps fund research for pediatric cancer and pay for the treatment of thousands of patients.
Through the research funded by Four Diamonds, experts can learn more about pediatric cancer and how to treat it most effectively. The goal is to one day find a cure for pediatric cancer, but today you can show your support by donating and sponsoring me as I dance and take a stand against childhood cancer.
