Students bring cards and cheer

stmarysstudentssjregionalmed-webRecently, three students, Katie Lillia, Shivam Sachdeva and Mick Kirchman, from St. Mary’s School, Vineland, visited the nearby South Jersey Regional Medical Center and The Frank and Edith Scarpa Regional Cancer Pavilion, bearing boxes full of hand-made cards created by all the students at St. Mary’s during art class.

“The patients spirits were lifted,” said a SJH employee and “the air was upbeat and positive for the rest of the day.”

One patient kiddingly asked if the children could sing. Although unplanned, the children broke out singing, “The Bare Necessities,” a song they performed together during the school play, “The Jungle Book,” this year.

Dr. Kush Sachdeva, Cancer Specialist and Carol Copsey, Clinical Outcomes Manager, helped coordinate the visit.
