Re: “Fighting for the forgotten”
Issue #3-2009

What a pleasant surprise to see Myroslava Tataryn’s smiling face in the Review.

However, it was not surprising that she had been awarded a fellowship and was advocating internationally for the disabled on behalf of the Stephen Lewis organization.

Even as early as her elementary years in school as one of my former pupils, here in St. Catharines, Ontario, Myroslava demonstrated her intelligence, inner strength, and overall beauty, which, combined, completely outshone any visible disability.
