For the past several years, the association has hosted an annual fundraiser to raise money to aid in the fight against cancer. This year, AASP/NJ chose the John Theurer Cancer Center as the recipient of funds raised during its 2018 Race Night event, held this past June at RPM Raceway in Jersey City.
On Oct. 3, AASP/NJ President Jerry McNee visited the John Theurer Cancer Center to meet with Nancy Karole Kennedy, director of development at Hackensack University Medical Center, to formally present the $1,000 donation and tour the facility.
“AASP/NJ is proud to support the John Theurer Cancer Center,” said McNee. “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 and wellness programs are truly life-changing.”
Added Kennedy, “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 at Hackensack University Medical Center is New Jersey’s largest and most comprehensive center dedicated to the diagnosis, treatment, management, research, screenings and preventive care as well as survivorship of patients with all types of cancers.
