the costs can soar into the thousands
of dollars. Certainly, the financial
impact of cancer should not destroy
families as cancer destroys their chil
dren. In an effort to lessen this fi
nancial burden, the Board of Trust
ees of Penn State University estab
lished a fund whose main purpose is
to provide relief from these extraor
dinary costs. The fund benefits the
children and the families of the chil
dren treated at the Milton S. Hershey
Medical Center. The name of the
fund is the Four Diamonds Fund,
named after an essay written by
Christopher shortly before he died.
Everywhere you go at University
Park, you see signs and posters pub
licizing "Thon.” A dedicated group
of students organize and run “Thon”
with support of the administrators
and faculty of Penn State. There are
countless numbers of hours that are
invested into planning an event ol
this caliber and in order to pull it off
there are endless amounts of physi
cal and mental devotion from the stu
dent body of University Park. Next
to football weekends, “Thon” is one
of the most popular student sup
ported events at University Park.
“The children are actually present for
the dance marathon and the looks on
their faces would lead you to believe
that Thon is like a second Christmas
to them. Just when you’re thinking
that you could not dance to one more
oldie, you see the smile on some
child’s sweet face and you remem
ber why you have to keep dancing.”
One environment.
One stmple way to care for it.
