At this point, most of the country has heard the story of the brave 7th grader who heroically stopped the bus when the driver had a medical emergency and lost consciousness at the wheel. What many of us may not realize, is that under Michigan law that bus driver will now be unable to operate a vehicle for a minimum of six months. She is a dedicated school bus driver who gets up each day to get our children to and from school. She also works extra time taking students to field trips and school sporting events. She cares for each of the students on her bus as if they were her own. In addition to the care she shows her students, she is also a devoted mom of three young children, ages 8, 7, and 4.
At this time, she wishes to keep her name out of the media to protect her privacy while recovering from what doctors believe may have been a seizure. This bus driver will receive only 60% of her pay, and even that will end on June 15th, when her income will be reduced to $0.
Any money raised will be used to cover medical bills, mortgage, and living expenses, and help bridge the gap between her lost income while she is legally unable to return to work. Please help us, help her and her family through this unexpected situation.
