Welcome to the online home of the 37th

Annual American Cancer Society Telethon, a

celebration of Eastern Pennsylvania's talent,

compassion and generosity and their

commitment to the fight against cancer.

 Produced live at Penn's Peak in Jim Thorpe.


   April 8-9, 2017  















     The Carbon Schuylkill unit of the American Cancer Society thanks you for helping make our 37th annual telethon a success.  Your generous donations helped us raise $215,949.00 to help in the on-going fight against cancer.


    Your donations help fund studies and treatments, provide lodging at the Hope Lodge for those undergoing treatment and their families, and helps with education and awareness programs, and much more.


    We would also like to take this opportunity to give a round of applause the performers who gave of their time over the weekend of April 9 and 10 to sing, dance and delight our audience during the telethon at Penn’s Peak.  


    We also thank those who shared their stories of inspiration and hope as they


 battle cancer.  Your words touch the hearts of many.


    Much gratitude to our generous sponsors, your continuing support throughout the years is bringing us closer to a cure.  


    A tip of the hat to the team behind the scenes- the crew from Blue Ridge C


able who produce our telethon every year-and beam it across the region on TV and on-line so that we may bring our telethon message to many.  We also acknowledge Service Electric Cable TV in Hazleton, Lehigh Valley and Mahanoy City for broadcasting the annual telethon to homes across the region.


      Our success would not be possible without the dedication of a band of volu


nteers who give of their time and talent unselfishly not only on this weekend but throughout the year.   You are the heart and soul of this telethon and words cannot express our gratitude.


      Again, Thank You to all, who had a part in making the 2016 Cancer Telethon a success.
