The Awesome Awards - Nominations

April Gilchrist

Nominated by Dejuan Noel
January 05, 2023
April is a mother of three, she is sick and her youngest has autism. Despite her being ill and in constant pain she gets up and takes care of everyone. She is always positive even when she is sick. I found out that she is going through testing for cancer on top of her illness. April went back to school last year and got her high school diploma at the age of 36 and now she is attending college while not only maintaining a GPA of 4.0 but also her child with special needs and usual mom duties. I am so proud of her. I don't have any photos of her but I did keep a photo she sent me of the proud moment at school. She was nominated for the National Academy of Future Physicians, however, to attend you have to pay and she couldn't afford it. I thought this would be a great way to show her that she is awesome.
