On Oct. 3, AASP/NJ President Jerry McNee visited John Theurer Cancer Center at Hackensack University Medical Center (HUMC) to present a $1,000 donation from the association.

 

The funds were raised during AASP/NJ’s 2018 Race Night, which took place in June 2018 at RPM Raceway in Jersey City.

 

"AASP/NJ is proud to support the John Theurer Cancer Center. It was quite a humbling experience to walk through the facility and see the type of hope they offer, which is a blessing to those in need. The state-of-the-art equipment, treatment, support and health & wellness programs are truly life-changing," McNee noted.

 

AASP/NJ has held an annual fundraiser for the past several years to raise money for the fight against cancer. This year’s recipient was chosen based on its comprehensive program for cancer care. It treats all cancers, including prostate and pancreatic cancers. During his visit, McNee received a tour of the facility and met with Nancy Karole Kennedy, director of development at John Theurer Cancer Center at HUMC, to present the $1,000 donation.

 

Kennedy shared, "On behalf of the Hackensack University Medical Center Foundation, I'd like to thank the Alliance of Automotive Service Providers of New Jersey for their generous donation in support of cancer research at John Theurer Cancer Center."

 

John Theurer Cancer Center is the state’s largest center dedicated to diagnosis, treatment, management, research, screenings, preventative care and survivorship of patients. With 14 specialized divisions covering the complete spectrum of cancer care, the specialized staff provides focused, advanced patient care within the 775-bed, not-for-profit teaching, tertiary care and research hospital.
