Twenty seven years of thanks to TCF.
Naomi was ten years old when diagnosed with a malignant tumor of the head and neck.
From our first visits to the pediatric oncology department at Hackensack University Medical Center, TCF was always there for us, working hand-in-hand with the medical and psycho-social team to ease her treatment. For nearly two years, TCF-sponsored programs, playroom sessions, holiday parties, day camp and support groups helped us get through the difficult times of surgery, radiation, chemo, medical scans, tests and procedures. After active treatment, follow-up care and support continued as part of the TCF-funded Cure and Beyond program. College tuition was made easier with a TCF scholarship. Connection with families who had gone through similar experiences made us stronger. The TCF community is still an important part of our lives.
Now 37, Naomi is blessed with good health, loving husband, Jesse, beautiful five-year old daughter, Bayla, and a career as a dance therapist, inspired by her experiences as a cancer patient.
Forever grateful, we work to support TCF and their mission in any way we can.
