Featured Pacesetters help in the battle against cancer

FEATURED JIMMY FUND WALK PACESETTER

Joyce Hooley Bartlett has been a dedicated team member of Just Wings since 2007.

“My reason for walking is to spread the stories about the progress being made, the researchers and doctors whose dedication never leaves a question unanswered, and the support teams who are there for families during treatment and beyond, but most importantly I share the stories of the walk heroes whose pictures greet me at every mile of the walk. I can’t let them down.”
