Kate and her family have experienced a roller coaster of a year. Just a few weeks after welcoming a new baby, the family faced serious medical issues and a long, difficult road to recovery.
Nominators reached out to us to share how hard this year has been on Kate, and how positive and relentlessly hardworking she has been during her family's tougher times.
The SooToday team took a drive out to Goulais to surprise Kate and her family with some gifts to hopefully end their year on a brighter note.
A special thank you to our generous sponsors for making today's surprise possible, including an anonymous sponsor, Duke of Windsor, and OC Hair, Bath and Body Co.
