Featured Pacesetters help in the battle against cancer

FEATURED JIMMY FUND WALK PACESETTER

Since 2012, Linda Turcotte, has been a Pacesetter each year, raising over $75,000 for breast cancer research with her team, Maurine Cindy Paul and Patrick's Troopers.

“My late sister-in-law, Maurine, was a willing participant in clinical trials—now two of those drugs are approved and used to treat breast cancer. Maurine would have been so happy with our accomplishments. I know this is what she would have wanted me to do.”
