This year, the Mobile JoyFactory was busy during Bristol-Myers Squibb’s annual Global Patient Week! With inspiring heart and amazing teamwork, BMS employees stuffed 5,500 more of Jessie’s JoyJars in three New Jersey locations (Lawrenceville, Summit East, and New Brunswick). More than 400 participants had the opportunity to spread Jessie’s encouraging message! The energy was upbeat and happy all week, with a compassionate goal to spread tons of JOY!

Everyone’s hearts were touched throughout the week, and they left inspired to continue to spread Jessie’s wish and mission with their families, friends, and communities.
