“Paige brings a wonderful energy and vision to the organization,” Bluebird Executive Director Renee Denslow said. “We have worked hard in the past three years to gain the support of our community — and, with that, we are now positioned to offer even more outlets for emotional support and personal development for adults with cancer.”
