A little bit about Brooke

Her coaches have been impressed by not only her athletic talents but also by the level of commitment to her own development and to the team as a whole. A strong role model for young women, Brooke balances the demands of provincial-level sports competition with maintaining high academic standing. She also finds time to be involved in her community demonstrating that her faith and culture are very important to her. Kind, caring, hard-working, and talented; Brooke's future is a very bright one! We hope this award can help in some small way as you pursue your goals of working in the field of oncology.
