2017’s been a bad year for a lot of people.
If you’re anything but white and rich, it’s likely you’ve seen a lot of tragedy and tough times. Teresa Martin is no stranger to that kind of heartbreak.
The mother of Kenneka Jenkins, who tragically and mysteriously froze to death in a hotel freezer back in September, has had a rough conclusion to the year, but she isn’t letting that block her from ending 2017 with a bang.
Martin recently celebrated her 44th birthday, and in honor of the occasion and her daughter’s life, had a life-size cardboard cutout made of Kenneka.
Pictures of the two along with friends was posted to social media and it has us in awe, literally.
Happy birthday, Teresa!
