A Gift of Wizardry

What can cheer up pediatric cancer patients of all ages if not a little Harry Potter?

 When the Reuten Clinic for pediatric hematology/oncology at Joseph J. Sanzari Children’s Hospital at Hackensack University Medical Center decided to spruce up its Children’s Learning Center, SARA volunteers created a fun space where patients can play and learn before, during or after treatment. Working with hospital representatives, our members came up with the Harry Potter concept, designed the room in its entirety, and worked with the hospital to get the design executed and the room built. SARA member Abby Schwartz of Abby Schwartz Associates led the volunteer effort on the project.
