Four Diamonds Fund

I found a fascinating article in the paper yesterday morning. I've promoted Penn State's Thon since I started writing "Lost and Found." I found out yesterday that the Four Diamonds Fund has a Lancaster County origin.

Charles Millard founded the Four Diamonds Fund to support research in pediatric cancer and to support families dealing with pediatric cancer. I knew the fund drew its name from a story written by Charles' son Chris, who died of cancer shortly after writing the story. I did not know that Chris wrote the story while he was a student at Elizabethtown Middle School.

Here is a link to LancasterOnLine's story

By the way, the Thon raised a record $12.3 million for the Four Diamonds Fund last month. Way to go!
