No child or parent wants to go to The Valerie Fund, but I love going! Knowing you have a place you can go to make you feel better and provide resources is comforting and we always feel like family. Jill from Child Life (at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center) is the best and any time she is around, everything is okay. I love all the other doctors too, and Nurse Colleen, Nurse Clarita, Nurse Rosh and Nurse Megan. They always keep me busy while we wait or have big treatment days.
When I’m not in treatment I like to spend time with my family, meet new friends, swim, play Minecraft and watch the Philadelphia Eagles.
