WOTV4Women

This mother’s day we’re celebrating moms!  We asked you to put  your mom in the spotlight and tell us what makes her so special.  Nominations from across West Michigan poured in to the WOTV 4 Women office and we narrowed it down to five winning moms to spotlight.  Each mom gets a winning video highlighting her nomination and a $100 Design One gift card.  We will be spotlighting each winning mom right here on wotv4women.com and on air each night between 8pm-11pm on MY ABC WOTV 4!

“My mother has raised my brother and I on her own and has been there for us every single day. She’s our role model because she is so selfless, sweet, caring, and strong.  She has worked her butt off to get us to our soccer, football, and band practices growing up.

In 2014, she was diagnosed with breast cancer after already losing her mother to breast cancer in 2011 (my grandmother won her first fight but unfortunately lost the second fight). My mother fought her way through many rounds of chemo and radiation all while going to work, going under numerous surgeries and still showing up to support me at my school events.

She is a blue star mother and takes pride in being a navy mom and is very involved with the veterans. Kim is also a member of ‘no member dies alone’ where she will come to the veterans home and visit with veterans who are close to passing and have no family to be there with them.

My mother plays a huge role in a lot of people’s lives and is loved so much by many. I owe the world to her.”
