Keri: POSH Mommy, Hero and Winner of the Diamond Brooklyn Bar!
The winner of our Diamond Brooklyn Bar Giveaway this October is no ordinary POSH Mommy. Keri Amerson from Florida is a wearer of many hats. She is a wife, friend, nurse practitioner and, most importantly, mom of nine year old twins Cole and Cason. Cason is currently battling thyroid cancer.
Our team at POSH first met Keri through her friend Pollyanna, who graciously suggested we give our Diamond Brooklyn Bar prize to her instead.This selfless display of friendship is just one reason both Keri and Pollyanna represent what being a POSH Mommy is all about, especially during this month of cancer awareness.
While Keri is certainly Pollyanna’s hero, Keri’s is without a doubt her son Cason. Diagnosed at age six, he has met this incredible challenge with courage and optimism. Just before his seventh birthday, Cason underwent a radial neck dissection and total thyroidectomy. Only a few days post-op, he already wanted to return to school!
Today, at nine years old, he is not yet in the clear, but his numbers are improving. Keri, her husband and Cason’s twin brother have been with him every step of the way.
“He’s a very strong and courageous boy,” says Keri. “He always smiles, even in the hospital. He himself is a hero. He is my hero.”
When Keri is not spending time with her family and supporting and caring for Cason, she is working long hours in the emergency room, showing that same support and care to other families in need.
We can’t wait to see how Keri personalizes her special Diamond Brooklyn Bar. It’s a precious keepsake for a truly deserving recipient!
