Help Every Angel Live


HEAL (Help Every Angel Live) is a Special Interest Organization at Penn State whose sole purpose is to support THON and our Four Diamonds Family. Founded in 2011, we have provided emotional support to two Four Diamonds Families and significant financial support for THON and the Four Diamonds Fund. As a group of approximately 50 students, HEAL raised over $41,000 last year. With your support, we can reach our goal of $50,000 this year.  

Our organization also provides emotional support for our paired family, the Tuckeys. Bekah Tuckey, twelve years old, was first diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia when she was five years old. Since then, she has beaten cancer twice and continues to show all of us what being a superhero truly means. Bekah’s last treatment was in October of 2016. We love supporting the Tuckeys day after day and seeing how much Bekah is thriving. The smiles we see from the Tuckeys are our constant reminder as to why we THON!

Our year-long efforts culminate in a 46-hour, no-sitting, no-sleeping dance marathon each February to celebrate our survivors, remember those we’ve lost, and take a stand--all in hopes of one day dancing in celebration of a cure.
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 funding critical research to take this 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.
