Local Event: NJ Families – Tunes for Thomas

Join us for a day of family fun at Tunes For Thomas on Saturday, May 4, 2013 at Lewis Morris Park from 11am-3pm. The event is being held in honor of Thomas Rice of Mendham, NJ.  Thomas was diagnosed in April 2011 with medulloblastoma, a brain tumor.  He battled bravely for a little over a year and succumbed to his disease June 7, 2012, at the age of three.  The goal of Tunes For Thomas is to raise funds to establish a grief support program for families at the Valerie Fund Children’s Center at Morristown Medical Center.  The development of a grief support program will provide a much needed service to families as they navigate the next stage in their cancer journey: life without their child.   The event will feature live music by various children’s musicians while also providing parents an opportunity to explore area preschools and local family-based programs and activities.
