In January 2009, when Ashley was 3 months old, she was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma, having 4 tumors inside her small body.  During her diagnosis and first round of chemo, our family was introduced to the Four Diamonds Fund at HMC.  This group helps provide financial support to families who have children dealing with cance and also help provide funds for research to find a cure for childhood cancer.  After receiving Ashley's diagnosis, the doctors decided she needed 8 rounds of chemo, 3 weeks apart.  from the time of her diagnosis and after receiving the first round of chemo, we had been in the hospital almost three weeks.  During this stay, and many others, The Four Diamonds Fund helped us by providing meal vouchers that we could use when we need something to eat.  Another thing that this amazing group helped us with was helping to pay for some of Ashley's co-pays for her numerous Doctor visits, scans, tests, etc...  Even to this day, they are still helping our family when Ashley has follow up visits with her Doctors and thanks to be god is almost 8 years cancer free!!!  Over the years, The Four Diamonds organization has bee there by assisting children treated at Penn State Children's Hospital and their families through superior care, comprehensive support, and innovative research.  Cancer is a horrible disease at any age, but it is heartbreaking as a parent to hear the that your child has been diagnosed with it, and there is a long road ahead of treatment.  So please join or support Team Ashley in helping to find a cure!  All donations are tax deductible.
