After suffering a stroke nearly a decade ago and spending months recovering, Bec began to understand the difficulties faced by people with mobility with mobility problems in accessing services and venues that we all take for granted….
She recognised that the platform at Unanderra Staton cannot be readily by people with mobility problems, the elderly, and parents with prams and she set out on a campaign to fix it….
Bec also works hard to raise awareness of Strokes and their impact and helps to raise funds for research and support. Bec is a most worthy recipient of this award, and I congratulate her. May she keep up the fight.” – Paul Scully Hansard (Wollongong Woman of the Year)
