Welcome to Saskatonians, where we feature and recognize people within the community of Saskatoon, showcasing the great things that they do, what they like and how they make Saskatoon great!
98COOL and Edible Arrangements are proud to feature the hero of the month!
December's Hero of the month is Tammy Yourkowski, thanks for the work that you do!!
Tammy was nominated by his Janet Phillips:
I would like to nominate someone who works in an area that gets very little appreciation. This past year neither my daughter or myself would have survived as well without her help.
My daughter Bree is 34 and is special needs. She has always been very active. In October 2016 they discovered a tumor on her spine. She spent 9 months in the hospital and went through radiation only to find out it had no effect. Now a little over a year later she is permanently in a wheelchair and learning to adjust to a lot of changes.
Tammy Yourkowski is her Community Services Worker. She has worked so hard for Bree this past year. Helping us get forms filled out right so Bree can move into a group home within Saskatoon. She has helped us with equipment, clothes, counselling, home care, PAAL program and so much more. Sometimes she just lets me rattle of an email to her to vent my frustration.
Tammy saved our sanity this past year and deserves to be recognized for all that she does.
