Lakota West basketball player Jasmine Ballew has experienced a profound impact on her life since this past fall. While the senior wing has helped the Firebirds (17-1) to a No. 24 national ranking this winter, Ballew has carried the inspiring words and actions of her mother and grandmother as a guide for an even greater perspective. When Lori Ballew, Jasmine’s mother, donated a kidney to Lori’s mother, Jan Houseton, Sept. 21 at Christ Hospital, it reinforced Jasmine’s desire to help her family and gave her a plan to pursue the nursing field in college. “I’ve seen a big change in her,” Houseton said. “She’s always been a compassionate young lady. She goes over and beyond to tell me she loves me and ask, ‘anything you want me to do, Granny?’”
