Today I was honoured with the City Builder’s Award by the City of Ottawa. Mayor Jim Watson and Councillor Jeff Leiter were there to present me with this award on behalf of my lung cancer advocacy. I am humbled to have received this award and am so very grateful that my story is able to help create awareness about lung cancer and the importance of research. I’ve attached Mayor Jim Watson’s introduction (which was cut off a little early) as well as my acceptance speech. #changingthefaceoflungcancer
Even Jack came out for the occasion!
