Nutley Fourth-Grader Among HHRS's "Jersey-est" of 2015

New Jersey Health, Medical, Fitness and Nutrition News Blog Celebrates Second Anniversary
Jan. 7, 2016 - PRLog -- Your HHRS, New Jersey's health, medical, fitness and nutrition blog, celebrates its second anniversary with a review of the "Jersey-est" stories of 2015.

Heartiest congratulations goes to Willem Wuebben of Nutley who rated as Man Of The Year -- a particularly awesome achievement since he's only ten years old. Nutley's mayor honored him for being a straight-A fourth-grader -- a particularly awesome achievement since he has Moebius Syndrome, a genetic disorder that can cause facial paralysis, speech and vision difficulties, and developmental delays.

"I had never heard of Moebius Syndrome before I met Willem," explains Your HHRS editor Adrienne Collier. "He not only introduced me it, but also to a worldwide online community of others with Moebius, their families, and their supporters. We were only too happy to help spread the word about their annual awareness day, which is January 27. To say that Willem and the Many Faces of Moebius Syndrome organization know how to put their best face forward is a major understatement!"

Woman of the Year is Lori Sweeney of Hillsborough, who has turned a life of obesity, bullying and low self-esteem into the book Goodbye Fatness, Hello Gorgeous!, available by mail order and online. "I didn’t want people to suffer as I did," she told the Asbury Park Press. "When I read the news about kids taking their lives because they were picked on mercilessly, it breaks my heart…I want these kids to know: They’re worth it.”

"Losing 125 pounds -- and gaining a ton of self-confidence -- is admirable in itself, of course," Ms. Collier notes. "But in addition, Lori has also been willing to 'build her brand' from the ground up with motivational speaking and writing. Breakthrough success -- at least, the kind of success that's really worth having -- doesn't happen overnight any more than losing 125 pounds does!"'

Others who made this year's "Jersey-est" for the year's most noteworthy stories  list include Charlie Sheen, Cyndi Lauper, and Martin Shrkeli.
