I want to send out a big fat THANK YOU! to everyone who voted for the nominees in our Mother’s Day Makeover + Photo Shoot Giveaway! There is no way that I could have possibly chosen one woman, so your help was greatly appreciated. With that said, the winner is Marla! Her incredibly touching story is below; I can’t wait to treat her to a day of beauty!! xoxo
My friend Marla is an unbelievable strong, loving single mother despite her many setbacks over the last couple of years. Marla’s husband left her and her two precious children for a life of drugs. She gets no support from him, only trouble. Shortly after they divorced she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Right before her scheduled mastectomy she discovered her Mother (her only living parent) had passed away in her yard. All of this is so devastating it is hard to imagine someone going through it and coming out on the other side, happy even. But she is. She has fought cancer, she is raising her children, she has found a better job to support them and she is a truly happy person. She is a fighter, and never, ever complains. I would be THRILLED for her to get an opportunity to be treated like the princess she is.
