Mandy O’Connor, a Penn State graduate and THON participant, fought Epithelioid Hemangioendothelioma (EHE) for more than a decade. EHE is a rare and often deadly vascular sarcoma (cancer) that largely affects adolescents and young adults. Mandy was diagnosed during her sophomore year at Penn State. While undergoing chemo she served on the morale committee for THON 2004, 2005 and 2006. Mandy was full of life was always smiling, and always laughing. In line with this sentiment, today is to honor Mandy’s memory by fighting with laughter, the best medicine.
The Hope Gala is committed to conquering childhood cancer by raising awareness, providing financial assistance, and supporting the fundraising efforts of Penn State Dance Marathon (THON), which benefits Four Diamonds, through our annual gala and year-round fundraising.
The purposes of The EHE Foundation are to support doctors and researchers in the treatment and cure of Epithelioid Hemangioendothelioma (EHE), and to improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
All proceeds from this event will be split between The EHE Foundation and The Hope Gala.
Lineup coming soon!
