Giving’s in our Family – and our Family Keeps Getting Bigger
Chairman, Hackensack University Medical Center Foundation Board of Trustees
Lawrence Inserra, Jr.
The Inserra family’s relationship with Hackensack University Medical Center began more than 25 years ago when Larry’s son developed Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Through expert pediatrician Dr. Jeffrey Boscamp, they met oncology specialists Dr. Michael Weiner and Dr. Michael Harris, and after a sequence of surgery and chemotherapy, Lawrence was cured. This experience began a lifelong relationship with Dr. Boscamp and the medical center.
“He was there whenever we needed advice or help with anything,” says Larry. “As soon as Lawrence was finished with his treatment, our family started giving money to that part of the hospital, this wonderful group of people, doctors and support staff.”
My father knew we were making good things happen, since he could see what was going on here, and it became a regular thing.
