Growing up is a beautiful thing. Let’s fight for it.
Along with Jhonen, SWE has also brought his mother Jen, and his two brothers, Zach and Trenton into our family. Trenton is now 8 years old and somehow manages to match Jhonen’s energy level. He is an absolute goofball and loves running around with SWE girls whenever he gets the chance. Zach is the oldest brother of the Sullivan Family and is now 16 years old. He really loves his younger brothers and would do anything for them. Our most recent visit was to an orchard where the boys could not get enough of all the games and loved seeing all the girls in their Halloween costumes
Our second family is the Plummer Family. The Plummer Family is the newest addition to our SWE family having been paired with us since January 2018. Sela has been recently diagnosed with Von Hipple Lindau which cause tumors on the spine, brain, and retinas. We hope to provide as much support for her as we can during her battle. Sela just turned 18 years old in October and will be graduating high school this year. SWE had the amazing opportunity to take her out for dinner for her birthday!
Her plans are to attend Penn State Altoona for biomedical engineering or Architectural Engineering once she graduates. She is incredibly artistic and creates absolutely beautiful paintings.Sela’s mother Kim, father Todd, and brother Max will also be joining our SWE family. We can’t wait to make our family even bigger with the addition of these amazing people. Sela pictured below in front of her amazing artwork and SWE girls .
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.
