Fun, Simple Ways YOU Can Help CONQUER Childhood Cancer- For the Kids!

Childhood cancer is a darkness that not only ravages the bodies of children, but every physical, mental and financial aspect of their family. It is from that darkness that the Four Diamonds Fund and the Hope Express were created and with them, the belief that childhood cancer can be conquered, the hope that is brought to families, and the generous gifts that have made miracles.
“The Four Diamonds Fund was established by Charles and Irma Millard after the death of their son, Christopher, who was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 11. The Four Diamonds is named after a story that Chris wrote shortly before he lost his battle with cancer at the age of 14. In Chris’ story, a knight must find the Four Diamonds of Courage, Wisdom, Honesty and Strength in order to be released from captivity by an evil sorceress. These Four Diamonds are symbolic of the traits Chris believed were necessary to overcome cancer."
The Four Diamonds offsets the cost of treatment that insurance does not cover, as well as expenses that may affect the welfare of the child. The Four Diamonds supports the medical team that cares for the children and funds pediatric cancer research through start-up grants and the Four Diamonds Pediatric Cancer Research Institute.” (

Below is a complete list of Philadelphia Chapter, Liberty Ball and The Hope Express events and fundraisers that benefit the Four Diamonds Fund. You can support the kids by donating or joining events in Philly or virtually from anywhere. Every donation and/or support given to any event, no matter how small, will make a big difference to a family whose child is battling cancer.
