Valerie Fund Children's Center Patient Stories

On Wednesday, February 12, 2020, donors, former patients and team members gathered for a ceremonial beam signing and hard hat tour of the Valerie Fund Children’s Center at Goryeb Children’s Hospital hosted by the Foundation for Morristown Medical Center. To start the evening, Jessica Carter and Zippy Cimino shared their stories of how they overcame cancer with the help of the Valerie Center team. You can hear their full stories below.

Through generous donations, we have raised more than $9.7 million toward our goal of $11.5 million to expand and renovate Goryeb Children's Hospital, which includes the Valerie Fund Children’s Center. When complete, the center will feature eight open and private infusion bays, a private family lounge, playroom and much more.
