NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ – Marcus Williams is one of those boots on the ground, or gravel to be more precise.

As the trucks hauling tons of crushed stone continue to arrive at the future site of the Jack and Sheryl Morris Cancer Hospital, it’s guys like Williams who are literally building the foundation for the state’s first free-standing cancer hospital.
