I am taking a stand against childhood cancer by joining more than 90,000 Mini-THON® students who are fundraising for Four Diamonds and kids like Devin. Four Diamonds was started in 1972 after the death of Chris Millard and is associated with THON at Penn State. Monies raised go to the Penn State Children's Hospital in Hershey PA.
On February 21-22, 2020, York Suburban HS will host its 7th Mini-THON. Students have raised over $380,000 for Four Diamonds and learn about leadership, organization, planning, and philanthropy. The students develop skills that can carry into their careers and adult lives. Our goal this year is $100,000.
In the U.S., more children die from cancer than any other disease, with 16,000 kids diagnosed every year. The dollars I raise support some of the latest breakthroughs in childhood cancer research. 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.
Your support also ensures that every Four Diamonds child, regardless of income, receives the highest quality of childhood cancer care without ever seeing a bill for that care. Four Diamonds needs your help to conquer childhood cancer. Please support my efforts to save more kids fighting cancer by making a donation today!
