“Cancer is an incredibly terrible thing to experience, but The Valerie Fund goes above and beyond to make treatment easier on both me and my family," Giulia said. "For instance, integrative medicine was always there to help me relax and feel better, or the educational liaison was always helping me with school. The events, the support system, and the people you meet – all due to TVF – shine some light on a dark and difficult time."
Giulia completed treatment just before the start of summer this past year and has returned to Rutgers University for her final year. She was also a speaker for the 2019 Valerie Fund Walk & JAG-ONE Physical Therapy 5K this past June.
During the week of his 12th birthday, Eli was brought to Morristown Medical Center's Goryeb Children's Hospital and diagnosed with T-ALL. “The Valerie Fund has provided mental support for me and my family, toys and camp. When I am at The Valerie Center, I like to play with the other kids or play on my iPad."
Eli was a camper at Camp Happy Times this past August and managed to get in some classic American camp activities among all of the Harry Potter magic this year. "I caught a fish at camp this summer!"
