This month's Jefferson Award winner addressed a tragic loss by making life better for others.
Ellie Hundt's daughter, Amanda, passed away twelve years ago. At first, Ellie simply shut down. But then she realized that Amanda would not want that. So Ellie found a way to help others. You can watch her story here.
