It’s son number 1 again, taking over briefly to add a blog post that Mum never would.
The New Years Honours list is in the NZ Herald today and it includes Mum! She is to be inducted into the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to women’s health.
The award means a great deal to our family and we owe a debt of gratitude to many of her friends and colleagues who organised this. The submission included 13 letters of recommendation from people she has worked with over the years. It is a huge honour for all our family as it recognises the dedication and passion Mum’s has put into her craft. It is richly deserved award for a life’s work.
Well done Mum!
