When Kimberly Hasapes lost her mother, Nana, to leukemia last December, Kimberly didn’t make the choice to sit at home and gloat.

A 38-year-old retired United States military veteran, she remains motivated to help fight the disease that killed her mother.

While Governor Ted Strickland reviews a capital budget bill that arrived in his office last week, Brent Welker feels as if he’s sitting on pins and needles.
