About My Campaign

Donations made in loving memory of Frank J. Balcer, Jr. will support the NYU Langone Orthopedic Hospital.

At 91 years of age, our dad was a tremendous fan of rehabilitation and was a grateful recipient of mobility-saving care and procedures at NYULOH and throughout NYU Langone Health. The kindness and expertise with which our physicians and surgeons, nursing staff, physical and occupational therapists, and all team members have treated our father and all patients is extraordinary. A civil engineer who loved to solve problems both big and small, our father particularly enjoyed working with our medical and research teams in the course of his clinical care. In his final days following a fall in the setting of COVID-19 infection, our dad was determined to live to see his 91st birthday. That he did, and more. To our dad’s many providers, we are truly grateful.
