Scene Around: Rumson Spotlight on Kids’ Cancer Fight Helpers

They’re in the fight to win it — the fight against pediatric cancer.

And one step toward that win is fundraising for various components of the effort. One organization that does such work with care, support, survivorship and research funding is Tackle Kids Cancer at K. Hovnanian Children’s Hospital.

To aid in a celebration of this organization’s efforts in fighting the kids’ cancer fight, Jamie Caulfield, a Rumson resident and trustee on the Jersey Shore University Medical Center Foundation board, recently held an event at her home to highlight the group’s accomplishments.

“Hackensack Meridian Health Foundation thanks Jamie for her hospitality and for helping us spread the word about the critical work being done to fight pediatric cancer at Hackensack Meridian Children’s Health,” a released statement from Hackensack said.
