St. Matthias School sells duct tape creations to support Somerset Medical Center

January 23, 2013
SOMERVILLE, NJ, Jan. 17, 2013 – With rolls of duct tape and a little creativity, students at St. Matthias School of Somerset recently raised $500 to support The Steeplechase Cancer Center at Somerset Medical Center. Members of the school’s “Duck Tape Stuff Club” created more than 200 items made entirely of duct tape and sold them at the school’s Christmas Craft Fair to help enhance cancer care in their community. 

The Steeplechase Cancer Center enables Central New Jersey cancer patients to see their doctors, undergo outpatient treatment and participate in promising cancer research studies – all in one place close to home. The three-story, 63,000-square-foot facility, which opened in 2007, houses radiation therapy services, infusion therapy, breast imaging services, the medical center’s research team, oncologists’ and surgeons’ offices, nutritional counseling, patient navigator services, a patient resource library, the Sanofi US Wellness Boutique and complementary medicine services, such as yoga, t’ai chi, meditation and massage. The Sanofi US Breast Care Program is one of only a select few in New Jersey to achieve full accreditation by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers and has also been named a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology.
