Penn State Alum and Author Donating Proceeds To THON
Rossberg participated in THON during all four years that she was a student (2007-2010), and now wants to give back to THON in the best way she can.
“THON had such an impact on me, and I knew that whatever I wound up doing with my life, THON would be a part of it. This is my way of continuing the fight,” said Rossberg.
The book, in Rossberg’s words, is about the power of imagination and courage when facing adversity.
“It’s a boy’s journey to rediscover imagination in a world where it no longer exists,” she said.
Last year, Rossberg visited the Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital and read her book to children that were healthy enough to leave their hospital beds to listen. She then individually visited the less fortunate children in their own rooms.
“I watched these children escape into their imaginations within the world of my story,” she said. “I may not be a doctor or a nurse, but I will always fight for these kids in whatever way I can. This donation is one of them.”
She plans to make the donation Sunday morning to ensure that it will be counted in the final total.
