We received many wonderful nominations for The Island News’ 2014 Mommy Makeover contest, thank you to all the friends and family members who took the time to describe the amazing, deserving moms in your life. It was truly a difficult decision, but the winner of this year’s Mommy Makeover goes to Kathy Bauer. She will get her hair and makeup done at Lime Lite Salon and enjoy dinner for two at Saltus. Happy Mother’s Day to all the amazing moms in our community!
My mother is chronically ill herself, suffering from Multiple Sclerosis for at least 16 years. She has trouble walking some days, balancing others and on her worst days, talking. She has chronic headaches, blurred vision and hurts constantly. She has proven to be so very strong during her husband’s fight, and not once has taken a minute for herself. She doesn’t believe in spending money on herself and never will. She needs a day, an hour, a minute…to remember that she is loved and is beautiful.”
