Volunteer of Distinction Award Recipients:

Congratulations to the recipients of the 2024 Volunteer of Distinction Awards.

Stéphanie Morissette

Stéphanie has navigated a road no parent wants to find themselves on, following her daughter’s diagnosis with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG). Though DIPG eventually claimed her daughter’s life, Stéphanie continues to fight in her memory. Read more about Stéphanie Morissette and her daughter, Florence here.


Mary Rawlings

Mary became a caregiver and advocate for her husband, Stu, through his journey with a brain tumour diagnosis. She found community by participating in a virtual support group for caregivers, eventually taking on a volunteer co-facilitator role. Read more about Mary Rawlings here.


Stu Rawlings

As Stu recovered from surgery following his brain tumour diagnosis, his challenges included not being able to swallow or speak. He regained confidence and strength through his participation in a virtual support group and became a volunteer co-facilitator soon after. Read more about Stu Rawlings here.
