Founder's Message

Four Diamonds co-founders Charles and Irma Millard.

Dear New Four Diamonds Family,

Many years ago we were faced with the same devastating experience that you now face, of having a seriously ill child. As co-founders of the Four Diamonds, we want to greet you and tell you "you are not alone."

Christopher was treated in another state, and at that time our solace and loving care came from the staff at the children's hospital where he was treated. To avoid the breakup of families and the hundreds of miles of travel, we founded Four Diamonds here at Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital to help meet your needs, both financially and medically, for the care and treatment of your child.

Having gone through the same experience, we know how anxious and helpless you feel. The staff at Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital knows that too, and is there to help you through this difficult time. They are all well trained in their field and will treat your child with their expertise, love, and understanding. We wish you all the best, and hope to meet you at one of the Four Diamonds functions.


Charles and Irma Millard
