For the Families

The families battling childhood cancer remain at the core of our mission.

THON aims to provide both emotional and financial support for families supported by Four Diamonds at Penn State Children's Hospital, by facilitating lifelong relationships between families and volunteers, fostering a sense of community, and providing year-round support. Above all, THON strives to ensure that the families remain at the heart of every volunteer’s efforts and that everything is done
For The Kids.
