Mary Receives 105th Airlift Wing's Young Champions Medal of Honor!

Yesterday, Mary had the special honor of receiving a Medal of Honor from the 105th Airlift Wing, Stewart ANGB for being a "Young Champion". The Young Champion Program was created in 1998 to recognize the courage of children who have battled or are currently battling life-threatening or debilitating injuries or illnesses. Although Mary could not attend the event in person, because she is in the hospital, Sue Manning, the person who nominated Mary for the award, accepted the award on her behalf and then delivered it to Mary in the hospital. Sue is pictured below giving Mary her award.
