How are/were you involved with Four Diamonds and THON? 
We are a Four Diamonds family.

The year-long efforts of the Penn State students contribute to Four Diamonds families in so many ways-- financial and emotional support, hope and a connection through the shared mission to end  pediatric cancer.

What is your dream for Four Diamonds and THON over the next 40 years?
We all dream of a cure! In the meantime, our hope is that THON and Four Diamonds will continue to develop programs to meet the psychosocial needs of families and patients and to address and reduce the long-term psychological and physical effects of treatment.
