In his role as a Starlight Ambassador, Guy says he is continually inspired by the courage of the kids and families whose lives have been disrupted by serious illness.
When I visit the Starlight Express Room I see kids that are constantly smiling and families that are always getting involved with the fun activities. It is a real eye opener to see such positivity and courage. It is a good lesson because we all tend to get bogged down in daily tribulations and seeing these kids is really inspiring.Guy Grossi
