Penn State York senior and cancer survivor Jimmy Clark is continuing his efforts to help children battling cancer.
Clark was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a rare bone cancer, when he was a sophomore at Red Lion Area Senior High School, according to a news release. He was treated at Penn State Children’s Hospital in Hershey.
Now the 21-year-old is cancer free and looking to add to the $40,000 already raised through poker tournaments to help others battling cancer.
The fifth annual Poker with Jimmy Texas Hold ‘Em Tournament will be held starting at 10:30 a.m. Nov. 22 at Goodwill Fire Company, 2318 S. Queen St., York Township.
A donation of $50 is suggested. Anyone 14 or younger must be with an adult, the release says.

Money goes to the Four Diamonds Fund, which supports children with cancer at Penn State Children’s Hospital. The fund helped Clark when he was being treated.
