Jarrett’s Joy Cart

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Jarrett Mynear battled cancer 6 times, and as a patient at Kentucky Children’s Hospital, he wanted to help spread joy to other patients, especially around Christmas time.

He started giving away toys through his mobile toy cart. In his memory, his mother continues his journey.

Jarrett’s Joy Cart makes it possible for patients to shop and give wrapped presents to their loved ones.

Jarret’s mother says it’s a joyous experience when patients come to the Christmas shop.

“It is fascinating, it doesn’t matter what age they are they are so excited, even the teenagers, you start to see them get the cool factor down just a little bit because they really do appreciate it.”

Jarret’s Joy Cart is in its 17th year.
