Four Diamonds children Charlie Beecher and Katelyn Bernard

The mission of the Four Diamonds is to conquer childhood cancer by assisting children treated at Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital and their families through superior care, comprehensive support, and innovative research.

Any Pennsylvania family with a child being treated for pediatric cancer at Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital is eligible for Four Diamonds support.

Since its creation in 1972, Four Diamonds has helped more than 3,300 children and families and supported a diverse platform of pediatric cancer research at Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital; seeking improved treatments and cures to benefit those around the world.

Its programs are made possible thanks to the generosity of donors, including 100+ individuals, Mini-THONs, and THON.

Because of the community's steady and generous support, Four Diamonds has been able to assist 100% of the pediatric cancer patients who have been treated at Penn State Hershey.
