(WHAS11) -- Louisville’s first Waterfront Fashion week kicks off October 17 and what better way to get ready than to get a makeover of your own?

We chose one lucky viewer to get a makeover live on Good Morning Kentuckiana. We narrowed down the submissions to four very deserving women and we had trouble choosing just one!

Tonya Mobley, a Louisville woman who suffers from Wegner's disease, was selected to get hair, makeup and a new look from head to toe.

Tonya's friends and family said she has been in and out of the hospital over the past 10 years.  She has lost her right kidney and right lobe of her lung to the disease. Tonya has raised five children and helped to take care of her grandchildren all while fighting to stay healthy. They also said despite her struggles, she always puts everyone else first. 

Congratulations Tonya, enjoy your new look and enjoy your day of pampering!
