In the U.S., 16,000 children are diagnosed with cancer each year – that is one child every 33 minutes.

    Dollars raised by the 2023 West York High School Mini-THON® support Four Diamonds’ research to better prevent, diagnose, treat and cure childhood cancer. Thanks to our support, Four Diamonds scientists and doctors can accelerate their work to:

    •  Conduct clinical trials that leads to new treatments and drugs;
    •  Offer treatment and hope to patients whose disease is not responding to therapy;
    •  Foster collaboration with doctors and scientists around the world; and
    •  Train researchers so we can continue to fight for the next generation.

    The community’s support also ensures that every Four Diamonds child, regardless of income, receives the highest quality of childhood cancer care without ever seeing a bill for that care. Since 1972, Four Diamonds has helped more than 4,800 children and their families.

    We are extremely proud of our Student Council, participating students and teacher volunteers for making this year's Mini-THON® a huge success!
