'LIVE WITH REGIS AND KATHIE LEE' HONORS DARLENE MERCER OF DOVER, FLA. AS A NATIONAL WINNER OF ITS 'THANKS FOR GIVING' MAKEOVER, NOV. 25

 TAMPA, Fla., Nov. 24 ~PRNewswire~ -- Thanks. For going the extra mile. For being there. For giving. Thanks: a small word that "Live" will celebrate in a big way by honoring Darlene Mercer of Dover, Fla. Of thousands of entries, Mercer was selected as one of five winners in "Live's" Thanks for Giving Makeover Contest, and will appear on the show on Wednesday, Nov. 25, to receive a head-to-toe makeover.
 A homemaker and mother of four, Mercer provided her family with the strength to make it through a difficult year. In December of 1991, Darlene's three-year-old son Bret was diagnosed with leukemia. Darlene spent the next year caring for her young son.
 In her official contest letter, Mercer's sister, Donna McCallum, explained: "... She lived in the Ronald McDonald House for almost five months, which made it hard for her to take care of herself, because most of her time was taken with caring for (Bret) ... Not only was she caring for Bret, but also for his three sisters who had to stay at home ... she was not giving herself a thought."
 Now McCallum wants to help Mercer forget the tough times, and concentrate on the future and herself. "She now wants to work in hospitals to help other mothers get through what she's already been through. I'd love to see her have a makeover and feel really good about herself first."
 "Live" thought Mercer deserving, as well. Watch "Live" Wednesday to see fashion consultant Christine Kunzelman work her makeover magic on Mercer.
 Join "Live" all week for their "Thanks for Giving" celebration.
 "Live" airs on WTVT-TV, Channel 13, at 9 a.m.
