Carmel Gordon is awarded the Australian Mother of the Year. She is the mother of six children and grandmother to eight. She is a philanthropist working for the welfare of many who are in need. She donated her kidney to one of her sons.
This was in lieu of the Mother's Day celebration held on Sunday at the Sydney's Luna Park.
She has devoted 15 years of her entire life for serving disabled children. As of now she is full-time care-taker who attends to a girl suffering from Angelman Syndrome which is a neurological disorder.
