Essay: “The Most Wonderful Mother” – Michele Melick


More than 15,000 people visited the contest entry pages and there were nearly 300 entries.  The essay that appears here was edited and reformatted from a text file and uploaded in PDF format.  Some of the contest submissions that were not selected as winners may also appear on our website and in various Kidney Cancer Association publications in the months to come.  Thanks to everyone who participated.


Winner selection process:  Entries from six different web pages were aggregated for juding to determine a single winner in each of three categories.  An impartial jury was appointed by KCA.  Originality of submissions and relevance to kidney cancer were key considerations of the judges.  We regret the prior posting of some incorrect information concerning contest winners on this page.
