Alabama Teachers Donate 100 Sick Days To Father Caring For Daughter With Cancer
Teachers are known for going above and beyond to help their students, but their dedication doesn’t stop there. When a fellow teacher is in need of help, educators don’t hesitate to step in and do what they can.
Alabama history teacher David Green, whose 16-month-old daughter was recently diagnosed with cancer, ran out of designated sick days to take care of her and his colleagues came to the rescue.
David’s wife asked the community of teachers if they could donate a total of 40 sick days to allow David more time to be with his daughter, Kinsley. The response was overwhelming and 100 days were donated.
David is officially out of sick days at work. We want him to continue to be able to be with us at the hospital while…
“We were blown away with the response that we received with the sick days. We were hoping to get a couple days so he could be here once a week,” Megan Green, Kinsley’s mother, told CNN. “It is a huge blessing and we can’t wait until we are in the position to give back and help others.”
