UPDATE: We have a winner!

I’d like to nominate my mom to be entered to win this awesome massage prize. Her name is Kathee and in 2005 she was diagnosed with an acoustic neuroma (brain tumour) the size of a tennis ball. We didn’t know if she would make it out of her first surgery, and if she did, she would still have to learn to speak, stand and walk all over again because the surgery had to remove several nerves that control speech and coordination. She was a total ROCKSTAR, even in the 13 brain and spinal surgeries she has had since 2005 due to various complications.

She is so awesome because in spite of all she has been through, she eventually got back to work full time as a family doctor in Toronto, specializing in women’s health and psychotherapy. She never gave up and she improves the lives of Torontonians every day!

I’ve attached a photo of the two of us on my wedding day last June here. Looking at her you’d never know what she’s been through.

Thanks guys,


Alyssa & Kathee
