SOCIAL MEDIA ACTIVITY
Facebook: Jacob Melrose Fishing
I wanted to get involved with Pink Fishing because as we can all agree cancer is a disease that has effected everyone in one way, shape, or form. I am proud to be in partnership with a company that is doing their part to combat this plague and I want to help in “Reeling in the cure”.
