Make a difference in the life of a child.
Atlas is a special interest organization for THON. We are devoted to raising money for the Four Diamonds. The Four Diamonds provides for pediatric cancer research and patient care at Penn State's Hershey Children Hospital. Together we ensure that no parent sees a bill, no child fights alone, and we are banded together in the fight against pediatric cancer.
We were blessed with FIVE THON families since Atlas started in 2005, when we were paired with the Smith Family. Victoria Smith was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in 2005. Victoria and her family attended their first THON in 2006! She is now cancer free for 13 years!
In 2010, Atlas was paired with the Brobson family. Claire Brobson was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in 2007. She was the first Four Diamonds child to finish treatment during THON weekend in 2010. She is now 11 years cancer free!
In 2012, Atlas was paired with the Gerena Family. Amarie Gerena was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in 2009. She is now 12 years cancer free!
In 2015, Atlas was paired with the Norton family. Samir Norton was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia in 2012. In 2020, Samir went back into treatment, and we are constantly fighting for him and his amazing family!
In 2018, Atlas was paired with the Garcia-Ramos family. Anthony Garcia-Ramos was diagnosed with Leukemia in 2018. He is now 2 years cancer free as of July!
