Penn State Hazleton Benefitting THON

Join us on February 21, 2020


Make a difference in the life of a child.

Help save the lives of children battling cancer by supporting THONTM. Our Organization, Penn State Hazleton Benefitting THON, is taking action by uniting with 16,500 student volunteers to raise funds and awareness in the fight against childhood cancer. Since 1977, THONTM has raised over $168 million for Four Diamonds at Penn State Children's Hospital. Throughout our partnership, we have ensured that over 4,000 families have not seen a single medical bill. In addition, the local research that is being done is making a global impact so that one day, we will find a cure. Each February, THON's yearlong efforts and support for the families culminate in a 46-hour, no-sitting, no-sleeping dance marathon.
By supporting THON, you will be joining a community committed to conquering childhood cancer.

The Tiana Coreano Family  

Penn State Hazleton has been paired with Tiana since 2015! Tiana is an Ewing Sarcoma Cancer Survivor; she was diagnosed during her junior year of college. Upon her diagnosis, Tiana was a student at Penn State York majoring in Business Administration. Tiana has two sibling, Liam and Brooklyn and her favorite vacation sport is Orlando, Florida. Throughout treatments, Tiana has subjected herself in clinical trials and experimental procedures in hope of getting new and better procedures federally approved for future little patients. She has gone through 88 blood transfusions, 12 plasma transfusions, and heart surgery. We are extremely lucky to have Tiana as part of our family; she is one of the strongest people we know!
