EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ - Atlantic Health System has teamed up with the NY Jets to fight pediatric cancer. On Sunday, October 15, as part of the NFL and American Cancer Society’s Crucial Catch: Intercept Cancer game, Colllin Berg, age 15, from Budd Lake, Audrey Higgins, age 10, from Hamburg, Trevor Calise, age 11, from Hampton and Quinn Knapp, age 9, from Martinsville  served as honorary captains during the coin toss against the New England Patriots.

These four children are either undergoing or recently underwent cancer treatment at Goryeb Children’s Hospital.

In addition, Jack Jacinto, age 11, from Newton, had the experience of being on the sideline for pre-game warm-ups thanks fo the VGo Robot. Designed for children with extended illnesses, immune deficiencies and other physical challenges that prevent physical attendance, the VGo robot provides an essential element for a child – the ability to participate in classroom and social experience.
