Double lung transplant survivor Hélène Campbell will be at the Barrie Campus on Thursday to talk to students and staff about organ and tissue donation.
She has worked tirelessly to promote the cause, developing a significant public following and engaging celebrities like Justin Bieber and Ellen DeGeneres through social media and her personal blog. In February 2013, she appeared in person on the Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Hélène will speak as part of Colour Me Georgian, celebrating the college’s Gift of Life campaign from 3 to 6 p.m. in the residence field.
Following her presentation, students will participate in a giant colour fight.
