About the Shire BRAVE Awards
The Shire BRAVE Awards is an international program created by Shire to honor the courage and dedication of individual voluntary caregivers.  For the Shire BRAVE Awards, a caregiver is defined as an individual who is providing regular, consistent care for another person(s).  The caregiver cannot be a professional healthcare provider and cannot be compensated in any formal way through their efforts as a caregiver.  The caregiver can be a relative, neighbor, or friend who gives their time, support, and compassion regularly, helping another person(s) who is (partly or wholly) unable to care for themselves due to health and wellness issues, injury, or other extenuating circumstance.  Nominations for the 2013 BRAVE Awards will be accepted through June 30, 2013 and award recipients will be announced in November 2013.  For further information on the Shire BRAVE Awards, including official rules, legal disclosures, and Privacy Policy please visit
