Be A Donor: A Special Message from @aLungStory

I hope you and your families spent a lovely Canada Day :) I was live tweeting Canada Day in Barrhaven, taking in the ridiculous Kids' Zone and incredibly fun performances from Wicklo, Eagleson and All Access. You can check out the pics for a look at the fun.

When the official part of the festivities began, we heard a special message from Hélène Campbell (aka @alungstory) who you might know as the double lung recipient from Barrhaven who has been campaigning for organ donation. She's even managed to solicit help from Justin Bieber and Ellen Degeneres.

Her message was to thank the Barrhaven community for their unending support of the Be A Donor organ donorship registration campaign.

She's such a phenomenal young lady! In fact she was awarded the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Medal for her efforts.

Please take a moment to watch her message and if you haven't signed up to Be a Donor, why don't you head on over right now?
