"Mom's the Word" Contest: Week 1 Winner!
May 4-Brandi Kirkpatrick's heartwarming story about her mom is this week's winning "Showcase Story" in Hurley's "Mom's the Word" Contest!
Brandi and her mom
In Brandi's own words:
"My mom has been my BIGGEST supporter my entire life. She's that person who is just always in my corner and defending me, even when I may not deserve it. Growing up she coached all the sports that I decided to play, even if she knew nothing about them. She was the most awful softball coach ever, but the best mom. Now I realize that she just did it to be with me.
"Two years ago she became very ill and I honestly didn't think she was going to make it. I remember telling family members, 'This is her last Christmas, I just know it.' I thank God every day for the doctors and nurses at Hurley Medical Center. They saved her life. She is doing great now and I couldn't be more thankful that she's still in my corner ;)."
