You must have missed Family Hour - where the families come out and thank the students for their cancer free children.

Some kids are cured. Not all.

Some money PSU raises ends up going to some parents whose kids were cure. A good cause.

Pediatric cancer, however, is still here. If it were “cured” they would all survive. Still, we can be very thankful many are cured.

My understanding of the THON process is that PSU kids stand on corners and solicit money from the rest of us... then they go to dance.

It would appear it is also none PSU donors who are curing some pediatric cancer patients.
