Bayonne Community Cancer Support Group Kicks-Off Toy & Gift Drive

 Each year the Bayonne Community Cancer support group with the help of the  members of the community provides toys and gifts for children who are receiving treatment for cancer and blood disorders. Intensive medication, frequent clinic visits, and hospitalizations all pose added challenges to these children’s growth and development. By providing opportunities to observe and celebrate special events we help these families maintain a sense of normalcy. The Bayonne Community Cancer Support Groups goal is that each child be able to experience the joy of receiving a special gift knowing that others care for them and wish them well.

They are asking community members to lend their support by donating gifts and toys for infants, toddlers, school-age children and young teens which we bring to children being treated for cancer at seven area hospitals that treat pediatric oncology patients; Beth Israel Medical Center, Hackensack University Hospital, Robert-Wood Johnson University Hospital, St. Peter’s University Hospital, Morristown Memorial Hospital, Overlook Hospital and St. Joseph’s Children Hospital as well as the pediatric floor of Bayonne Medical Center, our local Emergency Room and Family Clinic.

Local Health Departments Remind Residents to Take Precautions

The Path of West Nile Virus

Hudson Regional Health Commission has been notified that a 25 year old female, a former Hudson County resident, has tested positive in the state lab for West Nile Virus (WNV).  She was hospitalized in Bayonne Medical Center in late July after developing flu-like symptoms including fever, headache and a stiff neck.

 “The public health investigation, conducted with the resident’s local health department, revealed that the exposure period occurred during extended travel outside of New Jersey,” stated Carrie Nawrocki, Executive Director/Epidemiologist, Hudson Regional Health Commission. “Upon return to New Jersey, the patient began feeling ill, sought medical care and was hospitalized in Bayonne Medical Center for evaluation and treatment.  She continues to follow up with her physician, and has since moved to another state where she is recovering at home.”

 To date, 53 Hudson County mosquito pools have tested positive for West Nile Virus.  Continue reading HUDSON COUNTY RESIDENT TESTS POSITIVE FOR WEST NILE VIRUS
