Pediatric Hematology/Oncology patients at St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital (SJCH) in Paterson, New Jersey, recently enjoyed a fun surprise of pizza, face painting and toys. Hosted by Project Ladybug, as part of the Ladybug Fund at SJCH, Project Ladybug Pizza Week was a great treat for patients and their families. The Ladybug Fund at St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital is an initiative dedicated to providing important resources to seriously ill pediatric patients and their families as they face lengthy treatment regimens.
