2015 National Award (1 of 2)
The MADA NATIONAL award is presented to an individual who has displayed outstanding dedication or has been responsible for outstanding accomplishments of national significance in multiple births issues in Canada. This year we awarded two National Awards, to Sheila Catto and to Shirley Combden.
The first 2015 National Making A Difference Award was presented to Sheila Catto.
Has a huge passion for making a difference in the multiple-birth community, in supporting families with higher order multiples and has demonstrated this passion over and over again through the countless hours spent during her 7 years volunteering nationally with Multiple Births Canada.
Held positions on the Board of Directors including Secretary, Co-Chair and Chair.
Most recently Sheila was Director of Communications and spent many long hours making sure MBC Publications including E-News, Multiple Moments articles, Fact Sheets, National Multiple Births Awareness Day literature, and much more were edited and researched and ready to go.
Was a huge part of the team that successfully applied for and received the Charitable Status for MBC using her attention to detail and her research skills.
For all this work, and for her continuing role as Chair of the Higher Order Multiples Support Network, Sheila has been an invaluable part of the National MBC team and has helped MBC to support all families from coast to coast.
