Everyday I’m reminded that life’s journey is really about the people who touch us. When I first heard that I was going to be honored with this reward, the first thing I did, I was speechless briefly. I presented this reward before, I watched in awe as people like Eric Legrand and Kyle Dake, and all these other great people graced this stage. Although intellectually I get it, I’m a public figure, I’m battling cancer, hopefully I’m inspiring, at my gut level, I really don’t think I belong with those great people.”
