Cynthia Mulligan honoured for breast cancer advocacy work

One of our own was honoured on Sunday for her work in the fight against breast cancer.

CityNews reporter Cynthia Mulligan received the “Voice of the Foundation” award from the Canadian Breast Cancer foundation in an afternoon ceremony at the Royal York Hotel.

Mulligan was diagnosed with the disease last year and chronicled her fight on air and online.

“I think it’s important to talk about it. The best way we can beat breast cancer is to raise awareness about it, take away some of the fear, keep it out of the dark closet, put it in the sunlight and kick it,” Mulligan said.
