For the March Devon Energy Community Hero, presented by the Thunder, we honored Deb Hanson from Weatherford, Oklahoma.
Facing health challenges of cancer and lupus, she turned her own focus and spirit into battling the community problem of hungry children. She directs all of the profits from her Sweetness Factory cupcake shop to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma's Food for Kids program.
In just over one year, those profits have been able to provide 25,000 meals for children in that part of the state.
"I want to feed as many children as possible, that's my goal," she said.
