Dylan Di Meo and his parents presented a $500 check to the Andrew Tesauro Special Care Nursery (SCN) at Abington Hospital, where Dylan spent two and a half months after being born premature at only 29 weeks. For Dylan’s first birthday, his parents asked for charitable donations in lieu of gifts to support the SCN.
Sherri S. Gendelman Fund
Sherri’s Walk by the Water, held on July 25 in Margate, NJ, raised more than $40,000 to support ovarian cancer research at Abington Hospital. Pictured are Bob Gendelman, Abington nurse navigator Jennifer Cacciatore, RN, (center), and Rachel Gendelman. The event was in memory of Sherri Gendelman, a former patient at Abington Hospital who passed away last year after battling ovarian cancer for 17 months.
