To highlight the system-wide visits, 2018 NHL All-Star and cancer survivor Brian Boyle, 2018 NHL MVP Taylor Hall and NJD leading goal scorer Kyle Palmieri spent time with patients at the Valerie Fund Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at RWJBarnabas Health’s Children’s Hospital of New Jersey at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center. RWJBarnabas Health is the official healthcare provider of the New Jersey Devils.

CAPTAINS FOR A DAY

Both Lori (RWJ Somerset) and Ana (Saint Barnabas Medical Center & Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey) have been receiving treatment for breast cancer at RWJBarnabas Health facilities, in partnership with the Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey.
