Mecca Bingo Awards: Stacy triumphs over adversity for Riley
A ‘SUPERMUM’ has been given a top award for triumphing over adversity.
Stacy McKee, aged 25, of Gerrard Street, Kearsley, won the personal achievement of the year award at Friday’s ceremony.
Twenty months ago, Stacy gave birth to little Riley McKee, who was diagnosed with gastroesophageal reflux disease, a condition that causes heartburn and makes it difficult to swallow.
The brave toddler has been in and out of hospital and now takes medication four times a day.
Stacy and her husband, Shane, also have a three-year-old daughter Kallea and Stacy works as a nursery nurse at Bolton School.
And in September, she enrolled on a primary school teaching course Amazed at Stacy’s ‘supermum’ qualities, Shane nominated her for the award. Stacy said: “I was really shocked to have won. I couldn’t do any of it without Shane. He’s a real hands-on kind of dad.
“I’ve always wanted to be a primary school teacher but a few years ago I just didn’t have the confidence to go on a course.
“But after what happened with Riley I just thought ‘life is too short for that’ so I signed up.
