Growing up is a beautiful thing. Let’s fight for it together.
By supporting THON, you will be joining a community committed to conquering childhood cancer.
Bee House supports two families in our yearlong efforts with THON, The JordanLee Waldenberger Family and The William Sweger Family. Jordan Lee Waldenberger was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) in December of 2011. When first diagnosed, he was going to treatment every Monday. Now Jordan has completed his treatment (April 2014) and is showing no signs of cancer! Jordan is a very energetic boy whose personality lights up a room. Jordan’s interests include: Pokemon, Mario and Luigi, playing with water guns, the Ninja Turtles and Harry Potter. William Sweger was diagnosed with Hypodiploid Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) in December of 2015. He underwent a stem cell transplant that took place in April 2016. In December 2016, William rang the bell signaling the end of his treatment, but relapsed in January 2017. William passed away in July 2017. His memory lives on through his four sisters, parents, Bee House and as 2017’s Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Boy of the Year.
Since 1977, THON has raised over $157 million for Four Diamonds at Penn State Children’s Hospital, providing comprehensive care for 4,000 families and fund critical research to take our fight beyond central Pennsylvania and spread hope around the world. We work year-round to provide both financial and emotional support for our families, ensuring that they never have to face cancer alone.
Throughout the year, we will be fundraising to benefit THON in an effort to provide outstanding financial and emotional support and spread THON’s mission world-wide. We truly appreciate any support you provide, either by making a donation or by sharing our page on social media to spread THON’s mission. Thank you!
It is our hope that one day, every child will have the opportunity to live out their dreams.
