HOPE Tower Groundbreaking Ceremony 


While Jersey Shore’s groundbreaking ceremony on November 11, 2015, was filled with countless VIPs, including physicians, community leaders, executives and team members, the patients reminded everyone of the true meaning behind HOPE Tower. Set against a construction backdrop illustrating the vast scope of the $265 million dollar development, breast cancer survivor Sandra Doyle Ferullo and K. Hovnanian Children’s Hospital patient Jonna Crocker spoke passionately and poignantly about their hopes for the new tower. Wearing a t-shirt inscribed with #hope, Jonna, age 11, who has a chronic gastrointestinal condition, said, “I am excited to have a research center to try and find a cure, and that all my needs will be in one place. But the thing I am most excited about is the name of the building. Lately it’s been a little hard to keep hope, but every time I visit HOPE Tower, I will take a picture from the tenth floor, and it will remind me that I have to keep hope. HOPE Tower will give everyone a new perspective, including me.”
