I participated in an Ambassador Activation on behalf of for the Northwestern Mutual Foundation. I received a promotional item to thank me for participating
I am a mother. I love being a mother, but one of my biggest fears is that one of my children will have something horrible happen to them. I just can't imagine it (nor do I want to). There are a lot of moms out there who are heroes... but I want to tell you about one mother in my life (although not my mother) who is absolutely amazing.
Nadia received the news that her son had Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Cancer. I can't imagine all the feelings that rushed through her after that diagnosis came through... but over the next four years I watched her, and her family, go through treatments. While they definitely had their moments of hardships and struggles, I also watched their family grow and turn so much negative into a whole lot of positive. I don't think that it could have been possible without Nadia, so that is why she's #MyHeroMom.
Nadia quit her job as a CNA and dedicated her time to her children. There were a lot of long trips to the hospital and a lot of dealing with side effects of all the medication, but Nadia always seemed to focus on the positive. She really is an inspiration. Through the years she has really showed her strength.
Happy Mother's Day, Nadia.
And a very happy Mother's Day to all mothers out there. We're a lot stronger than we think.
