Megan was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia three days before her 2nd birthday.  For over two years, her and her family’s life revolved around her treatments.  If you were to ask her what she remembers about that time though, her reply is often a single word: THON.  Megan is now 16, and has been to over 10 THONs as well as mini-THONs at her high school.  In order to give back, she is running in the Hope Express 135 mile relay from the Hershey Medical Center to Penn State’s Bryce Jordan Center THON Weekend.  Megan will be the first Four Diamonds Child to run in it!  
To learn more about ways you can give back to THON, please visit http://thon.org.
