Greg and Amy Creasy brought their son Andy for a routine check up, when his pediatrician felt a soft mass in his lower abdomen. At the delicate age of 16 months, Andy was diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma. Fortunately, due to the support of the Penn State Dance Marathon and The Four Diamonds Fund, the Creasys were able to focus on what mattered most: Andy's well being.

Each year, Beta Sigma Beta Fraternity and our partners Kappa Delta Sorority, join more than 350 Penn State student organizations to help families, like the Creasy Family, through the Penn State IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon. Last year, Beta Sig and Kappa Delta were able to raise nearly $82 thousand. It is our sole mission to beat this total! THON is the largest student-run philanthropy in the world! Its mission is to conquer childhood cancer by providing outstanding emotional and financial support to the children, families, researchers, and staff of The Four Diamonds Fund. The Fund supports a team of pediatric oncology specialists, enables research through The Four Diamonds Pediatric Cancer Research Institute and offsets the costs of treatment that insurance does not cover.

Amy Creasy had this to say about their THON experience...
"My husband graduated from Penn State University and remembers THON along with all the activities related to raising money for the Four Diamonds Fund. When he was in school in the early 1990s, THON took place in the White Building and broke the $1 million mark for the first time. It is funny how things come full circle. As a supporter of the Fund, now we feel the full effects of what the Four Diamonds Fund provides. One day we hope our family and son can give back as much as we have received from the Four Diamonds Fund."

Please join us in the fight to conquer childhood cancer and make a gift to THON today!

Together, we will make a difference in the lives of children like Andy Creasy.

For The Kids. For The Cure.
