Hempfield MiniTHON is a year long fundraising event for the Four Diamonds fund, led by Hempfield High School, to aid in the fight against pediatric cancer. Our fight at Hempfield began in 2009. Today, Hempfield continues to break records and barriers in the fight against pediatric cancer, having raised over $690,000 in our first eight years!
What is the Four Diamonds Fund?
_ "The Four Diamonds Fund was established to assist children being
treated for cancer at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital and their
families through superior care, comprehensive support and innovative
research. Click here to learn more about The Four Diamonds Fund and how you can help conquer childhood cancer.
Four Diamonds Fund is unique to Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital.
In addition to providing financial assistance directly to families, the
Fund supports staff including pediatric nurse specialists, social
workers, Child Life specialists, a clinical nutritionist, music
therapist, and a child psychologist. Led by a pediatric oncologist, the
team seeks to provide our patients and their families with the
professional and emotional support they need during the child’s
treatment. The Four Diamonds Fund also supports the Four Diamonds
Research Institute at Penn State College of Medicine aimed at reaching
our ultimate goal-to cure childhood cancer."
