  1. Robin Rose

    Gabby Contreras- she doesn’t have a fb account. She is mom of three girls from Ripona Elementary. She lost her husband almost a year ago to cancer. She is raising three young girls on her own. She is a deserving mom and that’s my nomination:)

  2. Carolyn Dishman

    My daughter Kimberly is so very deserving of some pampering. She’s so kind, loving and sacrifices everything for her two daughters, day in and day out. She’s been through a rough patch these past three years with health issues and with those came along a lot of other problems. In all the mental physical pain and suffering she’s endured she has always seemed to keep a smile on her face and put a smile on everyone else’s. I’m so proud that I have such a sweet, selfless daughter and if anyone deserves some much needed time for her self it’s her.
