Cancer kills more children in the U.S. than any other disease.
Four Diamonds is on a mission to change this reality.
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.
Since its creation in 1972, Four Diamonds has helped nearly 4,000 children and families and supported a diverse platform of childhood cancer research at Penn State Children's Hospital, seeking improved treatments and cures to benefit kids around the world.
Penn State Children's Hospital was again recognized as one of the top 50 hospitals in the nation for childhood cancer care. The Children's Hospital was also recognized for five other specialties in U.S. News & World Report's 2016-17 rankings.
Meet our Four Diamonds families and join the fight to conquer childhood cancer.
