The Valerie Fund Children’s Center for Cancer & Blood Disorders At The Unterberg Children’s Hospital at Monmouth Medical Center

Recognizes that September is Childhood Cancer Awareness & Sickle Cell Disease Awareness Month

This year, we are saddened that we are unable to host our annual Make Some Noise for Childhood Cancer & Sickle Cell Disease event due to the current pandemic.

We look forward to this event every year, as it is helps raise awareness of the need to raise funding for research into the two childhood illnesses that affect the patients and families that we serve. We would like to thank the patients and families who have participated in this event during past years, and we really look forward to holding this event again next year. Although we are unable to physically offer our awareness event, we will continue to honor our patients who have been affected by Pediatric Cancer and Sickle Cell Disease during the Month of September.

Our surrounding communities have always played an important role in our Make Some Noise for Childhood Cancer & Sickle Cell Disease event. We would like to thank our hospital leadership and our community for always supporting us and making our event so special.

“I was very young when I was diagnosed so I can’t remember a time when The Valerie Fund wasn’t a part of my life. They are a light through a seemingly unending darkness. They have supported me and my family through every challenge and cheered us through every success. They are a family we never saw coming and can’t imagine our lives without.” – Orion Danielson, patient
