It was a trip of a lifetime for parents and their children who got their boarding passes as United Airlines employee volunteers at Newark Liberty International Airport hosted a fantasy flight to the North Pole for children from University Hospital and Newark Beth Israel Medical Center. ““My son Santino has leukemia, and this is a wonderful, wonderful situation they’ve presented for children,” said Arthur Anastasia.
