More than 120 people attended Thursday’s feast, which included a DJ and a dunk tank, where patients were able to dunk one of the many neurosurgeons on staff. “Our annual picnic gives us a chance to thank our patients for being such a driving force of inspiration to us all,” said Marketing Manager Tom Wood.
Partnership of Hope is for patients of all ages and walks of life who find solace in being around people who know their daily struggles. Ellen Marvosa explains how she met another woman from Scotch Plains, through the support group. “That’s what’s great about the group. I did not know anyone in my life going through what I was going through. Now I have people I can call or get together with who better understand this part of my life.”
