According to Ellen: “Ellen, I have someone for you to meet!” This came from a friend who had previously met Susan. In just seconds after our first meeting, I knew why my friend wanted me to meet special Susan. Susan’s huge heart has transpired her actions into making such a huge difference in the lives of so many children. Her family has made a tremendous mark and we are honoured to know and call them our friends.
