2019 New Orleans Mom of the Year Winner!

We are excited to announce that the winner of our 2019 New Orleans Mom of the Year is ::

Crystalyn Aucoin

{Nominated by :: Jessica Jones} She fell madly in love with the man of her dreams, had a beautiful wedding and (a few years later) found out they were pregnant! Just a few months after sharing this joyous news with family and friends, they called us together again to share devastating news… Ryan, her husband, had cancer.

Her entire pregnancy was filled with trips to specialists from New York to Houston. Once they had a plan, she left everything behind and moved with her husband to Houston so he could be treated at M.D. Anderson. After her son was born, she split her time between caring for her newborn and tending to her husband. She never complained.

After two years of battling cancer, Ryan passed but his wife, Crystalyn, keeps his memory alive each and every day through her work and philanthropy. She’s continuing Ryan’s legacy and commitment to helping others experiencing the financial burden of cancer. She’s an active advocate for the Karen T. Stall Research & Breast Institute as well as the New Orleans Lympho-Maniacs.

She encourages others to live life to the fullest because she knows just how precious life can be and how quickly those you love can be taken from you.
She started her own business to ensure she could be there for her son and fulfill her mission to help others with cancer.
She never thought she’d be a single mom… but here she is and she’s doing an amazing job! I have no idea how she manages to squeeze so much into one day!  She’s a pillar of strength, encouragement, and love.
