Featured Pacesetters help in the battle against cancer

FEATURED JIMMY FUND WALK PACESETTER

Since 2005, Robin has been walking and 2013 (pictured) was especially meaningful as it was the first year she walked as an amputee with her sister.

“The mile markers of cancer patients with smiles on their faces, whether going through treatment or in remission, is so powerful. It's thrilling to see the person at their marker. I acknowledge them, take a photo, and wish them well. Cancer has struck family members with some surviving, some not. Too often I hear a loved one receiving a cancer diagnosis. I walk with support from my family and friends to hopefully someday not have to hear the word 'cancer' from a loved one.”
