THON and the Four Diamonds Fund help offset any treatment costs to families that insurance does not cover. A large portion of the donated money also supports Penn State Hershey’s innovative research programs in pursuit of a cure for cancer for children worldwide. This year, around 12,500 children in the United States will be diagnosed with cancer. By making a donation today, you are helping make a child's dream to grow up a reality.
