2011 Mom Makeover Winner

You have to watch this story. It is one of my favorites and it's about two incredible moms who took care of loved ones with cancer. I cried with them, laughed with them and was inspired to think about what matters most in life. I encourage you to do the same!

Ann Troxell is focusing on taking it one day at a time. her husband Doug passed away from breast cancer just 5 months ago, leaving her two little girls without a dad.

Ann said, "The biggest thing I want to say is, when he told me he thought he had breast cancer, I laughed at him because i didn't think men could get breast cancer."

You'd think Ann is our Mom Makeover winner, but she is actually the one who nominated her best friend Nikki Cihi for the award.

Nikki said, "I have goose bumps just thinking about it. It speaks volumes as to the type of person she is."

They share a common bond. Nikki said, "March 28th of 2006 he was diagnoses with leukemia. He was seven years old."

Nikki's son Zachary is 10 years old today and in remission.

Nikki said, "He has lost friends, kids younger and kids older to cancer, I just can't imagine life without him. He's my hero."

Zach and Ann's husband Doug fought cancer together.

Ann said, "I didn't know what to feed him. I didn't know how to help him and Zach helped me with that. I could go to Zach and say, what do I do? How do I help him?"

Ann said, "It was the weirdest thing. My husband was talking to this little 9 year old and he was making him feel better. It was incredible and she raised him. She is responsible for that."

Ann says Nikki's courage and incredible friendship is how she got through it.

Ann said, "The last night before Doug passed, she slept in my bed with me. I don't think we slept, but just knowing she was there."

So today, these two friends are sharing a much needed new bond--a happy one.
Nikki said, "So I looked on-line and saw that I had won and said-what did you do?"

Ann said, "I was standing in my kitchen screaming. The neighbors probably thought I was looney."

These two local moms are taking care of themselves today, getting a physical and spiritual makeover.

And here's Nikki's new style! (Before and After)
