And the 2014 Richmond Supermom is…

Happy Mother’s Day!
Congratulations to our long list of incredibly worthy nominees!

It’s great so many women recognized in this year’s Richmond Supermom Contest.
We loved reading about the amazing moms we have in Richmond, it’s a great reminder of what being a mom really means.

Without further ado, the 2014 Richmond Supermom is….

Julia Martin!

“My sister is awesome! She is 29, mother of 3 and a breast cancer survivor! Diagnosed last year June 26,2013. I don’t know how she did it, fighting for her life while staying an active mom!She did not miss work except for her treatment day during her 3 months of chemotherapy. In many households, particularly those with younger children, mothers are use to running the show. They plan their children’s extracurricular activities, their family vacation, and their nights out with their spouse. They often oversee the finances, maintain the house, and manage the health insurance.  However emotional and physical challenges of breast cancer can render them helpless. But not Julia, she is a super mom during this difficult time, she did it all.  I can remember talking to her on the phone while at my niece’s dance class telling me how cute she looked. I asked her why was she there especially since she had chemo that day? She laughed and said , “why not?, this is what moms do!” She inspires.”
