Jocelyne Lampron, 9, along with her sister Jacqueline, walks as part of Team Pepere in honor of their father, Derik, who was treated in 2009 for sino nasal undifferentiated carcinoma (SNUC), a rare and often incurable cancer of the sinus cavity. Almost ten years later, Derik and his family participate in the Walk to give back for the amazing care he received during treatment. A Young Pacesetter in 2016, Jocelyne proves that you can support the fight to conquer cancer at any age.
