Inspiring teen from Peterborough is honoured in London

An inspiring 14-year-old girl from Peterborough has received the Princess Diana Award from the hands of Prince William for her compassionate efforts to comfort those suffering from cancer. Faith Dickenson was off to the ceremony honouring 20 young people for similar selfless decency at St. James Palace in the British capital this week. It happened almost without a word being said to her friends at school. Many thought Faith was off school because of illness. Faith has spent much of her young life repeating a kindness done for her sick aunt. She made the woman a blanket to ward off the chills that accompanied treatment for Stage 4 breast cancer. That was five years ago and as reported by the CBC, Faith has since sent 3,500 fleece blankets around the world through her non-profit organization, Cuddles for Cancer.
