STOMP The Monsterâ„¢ was founded in 2010 by Marlboro resident Seth Grumet after he was diagnosed with Hodgkinâ€™s Lymphoma.Â During treatment, he was moved by the needs of his fellow patients for financial, emotional, and physical support during their cancer battles and chose to do something about it.Â Since then, STOMP The Monster has helped more than 1,000 families in NJ, NYC, and PA who are facing cancer.Â For more information, visit stompthemonster.org.
