7 Eyewitness News is excited to introduce you to the winner of our Mother's Day Makeover contest!

Katie Morski has suffered an enormous amount of loss in the past year and a half.  Her husband passed away unexpectedly when she was eight months pregnant with their son.  Since his passing, Katie has been raising now 14-month-old Leo as a single mom.

Katie's mother entered her into the contest, and wrote this about her daughter, "She was terrified. She was not supposed to be a single mom or a widow at the age of 28. She has sacrificed her career and any luxuries for Leo."

As the winner of our makeover contest, Katie got a gift certificate to Macy's.  She also got a complete makeover at Salon Cielo in East Aurora.  The salon team of Jeanie, Jessica and Maria gave Katie an airbrushed makeup makeover, a hair cut and color, and a manicure and pedicure.

Happy Mother's Day to Katie - you're an inspiration to our 7 Eyewitness News crew!
