Lisa Lester (Ellisville, MO) -- Just 15 years ago, Lisa was faced with a tough decision. Her then boyfriend Jeff was diagnosed with ALS and was told to plan for his funeral. In his story, Jeff wrote that although he was given just two years to live, Lisa decided to stand by him and they were married a year later. Jeff and Lisa were determined to live a normal life and began a family. Despite a bleak diagnosis, with Lisa's care, Jeff has thrived. Now, 15 years after his diagnosis, Jeff and Lisa have two children and Jeff is attending his second semester of graduate school, and he credits Lisa's support and care over the years.

Alicia Mixson (Williston, FL) -- When Alicia's brother Joseph was injured in Iraq last September losing both of his legs and causing serious injury to his left arm, the doctor advised his family that he would need a full-time caregiver. Alicia didn't hesitate. She packed up and moved to Texas where Joseph received medical care from the military hospital. Putting her career on hold, Alicia is responsible for tending to Joseph's needs, including accompanying him to doctor's appointments, administering medication and more. Alicia's nomination was submitted by her great aunt Ann.

Charles Muller (Rensselaer, NY) -- Thirteen years ago, Charles learned that a number of the children he saw in the drug and gang-infested neighborhoods of his community were dependent on subsidized lunches. That summer he began distributing bag lunches at a local park and eventually opened a feeding center on one of the most dangerous and impoverished street corners in Albany. Children who have benefited from the program now spend their summers helping make 1,000 lunches a day and deliver them to 13 city parks. Today, over 50,000 meals are delivered each year to inner-city children and a second feeding center is set to open.
