From Four Diamonds Child to a THON Leader, Brady Lucas Gives Back

by on February 18, 2018 8:15 AM

At the age of 8, Brady Lucas was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia and has been a part of the THON community ever since.

His family never saw a medical bill thanks to THON and the Four Diamonds at Penn State Hershey Medical Center. Now seven years cancer-free, he's also a Penn State senior helping to lead THON as special events director, two years after being one of the 700 dancers at THON 2016.

"I attend now the university that saved my life," he says.
