Aaron Ware, a sophomore at Great Mills High School in St. Mary's County, found his life's passion while learning to work through a family tragedy.
When he was 6-years-old his twin brother, Eric, died after battling cancer.
Aaron was devastated.
A doctor suggested he find something he's passionate about to help pull him out of the sadness.
"He was my best friend," Aaron said. "He was always there for me. I was there for him."
That's when Aaron discovered his love for baking; baking cookies in particular.
He started baking as therapy, but at 15, it has become his job.
His mom stopped working and cashed in her 401k to pay to have commercial kitchen installed in their basement, and they started Dough Jangles.
Part of the proceeds go to various cancer causes.
