Donor Spotlight: Dr. Krekamey Craig
Several years ago, I was introduced to the Rosa Vera Fund (RVF) by a board member. As a fellow pediatrician (I run a small pediatric practice in Denville, NJ) I have always been passionate about caring for children from all socioeconomic backgrounds. I spent over ten years working part-time at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center caring for children in foster care, so I understand the suffering of children who don’t have the resources they need. I was so impressed with the work of the RVF that I decided to accompany Drs. Jon and Darlene Melk and other volunteers to Montero this past December, along with my teenage daughter, Jordan. During our trip, I was amazed at the level of dedication, love, and support of all the staff and families involved in caring for and maximizing the potential of the RVF patients. Jordan, who is interested in a career in public health, was so inspired she wants to continue the work of the RVF when she is older. Personally, I feel it is critical that the RVF be able to continue caring for its vulnerable patients, so I make a donation on behalf of my pediatric practice every year.
