Jennah Stavroff of Qualicum Beach has been awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal by the Chancellery of the Governor General.

A left leg amputee due to cancer, and a graduate of The War Amps Child Amputee (CHAMP) Program, Jennah, 28, was nominated for the medal and accompanying certificate by The War Amps in recognition of her long time involvement, together with her contributions to her community, amputation awareness and keeping the Remembrance message going among youth.  Jennah now lives in Edmonton.

“It was a privilege for us to be able to secure this honour for Jennah as a means of acknowledging her role in helping to build The War Amps into the organization it is today,” said Danita Chisholm, Executive Director of the CHAMP Program.
