Helen McCrae Award 2021 – Madison Moffat from Langara College
The early onset of an autoimmune disorder has shaped who Madison is today. Her many encounters with the health care system as a child and as a young adult encouraged her to seek nursing as a career. She has been a long term member of the Youth Advocacy Committee at BC Children’s Hospital. Madison’s career aspiration is to work in paediatrics at BC Children’s alongside some of her childhood hero’s and pay the care and empathy she received as a young child forward.
Of interest – her mother was a previous winner of one of Soroptimist International of Vancouver’s Women’s Opportunity Award (now is known as Live Your Dream Award).
