Take one look at Cumberland Valley junior runner Megan Howe. She's competing in cross country and track, going to sleepovers at her friends' houses and trying on prom dresses. She's living a perfectly normal life. But for Howe, diagnosed with Leukemia at age 2 and now 14 years in remission, just having a life to live is a gift. She says she owes everything to THON and the Four Diamonds Fund, in place to conquer pediatric cancer. A student-run, dance-marathon philanthropy at Penn State, THON has raised more than $101 million for the Four Diamonds Fund since its inception in 1977.
