May 2, 2016 — Success! On the 6th of May 2016 at 2:00pm, Jordan Lucas Rice will be presented with a Bravery Medal at Government House, Queensland. This event can be viewed real time or at a later date - please see link below. Having this event livestreamed is a great honour bestowed to me by the Governor of Queensland, his Excellency Paul De Jersey AC and as I understand, is very rarely afforded to many.

It is due to the simple stroke of the pen and the hundreds of thousands of emails and phone calls which have provided sheer weight in numbers that has ultimately resulted in the largest petition in Australian history. I would personally like to thank each of you for your generosity, support and solidarity as it is YOU that has made this award happen – a victory for the common man. Our journey has not been easy and make no mistake, I am more than aware that this award has been granted under duress.

I sincerely hope every single one of you can take a little bit of this award with you in the knowledge I will proudly accept this award on your behalf and in honour of Jordan’s inconspicuous courage in such circumstances of extreme peril.

I am determined more than ever to keep Jordan’s legacy alive and in turn pay forward the kindness and generosity afforded to us via The Jordan Rice Foundation.

The battle may be a challenge, yet my burning desire to help others who may find themselves in similar circumstances to me will never wain - no one should ever be left to fall by the wayside.

With sincere love and gratitude,
