HACKENSACK, N.J. — New Jersey State Police officers brought smiles to cancer patients at the John Theurer Cancer Center in Hackensack Thursday.
Major Michael Devlin, Captain James Ryan, and Lieutenant Sal Ingui delivered toys, gifts and NJSP gear to adults.
Ingui and his wife, Denise, brought gifts from their foundation, Rare is Beautiful, which they started after their daughter was diagnosed with Peutz Jeghers Syndrome, a rare inherited condition that puts people at an increased risk for developing polyps as well as cancers.
Detective I Dennis Cappello was on hand with his wife, Lori, who is a research nurse at the Medical Center.
Together, the group visited nearly 75 patients ranging in ages from 7 months to 87 years old.
