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.
The 2018 National Making a Difference Award was presented to Tracey Jardine.
Tracey Jardine is currently on the MBC Board of Directors and has been a valuable member of the team. Blooming with each project she takes on.
For the past two years, Tracey has been vital to the success of the special project work that MBC has worked towards.
When the MBC Board first decided to take on the 40th Anniversary of MBC without Chapter Support, it was Tracey who stepped forward without hesitation to volunteer to be the lead. She scouted locations, checking pricing and amenities until the perfect location was found.
When MBC first learned of the Purple Butterfly Project, it was Tracey who enthusiastically endorsed bringing it to Canada, contacting the original founders, finding out about the program in other countries, and putting together a plan to launch it here in CANADA. She and other board members met with hospital staff and other key stakeholders.
Tracy worked many hours researching ideas to fund the special projects that MBC has been driving the past year.
