Why is the partnership between Four Diamonds and THON important?
THON and Four Diamonds are able to foster hope amongst so many thousands of people - from student volunteers, to generous donors, to the children and families who need it the most. This relationship has made it so that thousands of families never see a medical bill, has allowed for incredible and life-saving research to be taking place and for awareness of the cause to spread across the country. 

What is your dream for Four Diamonds and THON over the next 40 years?
I can't wait to see THON and Four Diamonds' shared mission of conquering childhood cancer come true. Together, we will continue to grow to reach a larger audience, engage new supporters and touch the lives of more families, all in an effort to support these children and raise funds in the fight against childhood cancer.
