Charles Ruma, president of Virginia Homes in Powell, was diagnosed with testicular cancer in 2006 at the age of 36. He credits his positive outcome to the treatment he received at Ohio State's Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute. To give back, Virginia Homes is building a "Home for Hope". The 3,100-square-foot house in Dublin will be publicly auctioned at a June 25 celebration event, with net sale proceeds going to the OSUCCC – James and the LIVESTRONG Foundation.
