Charitable nurse raises money for young special needs client


DONNA: I work in a neonatal
intensive care unit. I went into work one day. And, there was a little guy. They didn’t expect him to live. He fought. But we fostered him until he was
three. And that’s when we adopted him. He’s a fighter. JEFF: He became the focus. He was kind of the heart and
soul of the family. DONNA: You know, we couldn’t do
this without help. And it’s nice knowing that
there’s somebody out there that’s gonna make sure that he’s
taken care of. BRANDI: I was a foster kid, so I know the importance of what
they have done, and what they continue to do
with Harley. He just is a beautiful little
soul and I just love him. LISA: I’ve worked before in the
past with children that don’t have a voice and to have somebody who cares
about them and is able to say, “I’m here, I’m a person too. And if I have a champion that
can be that voice, and know that I’m heard,” means
a lot. DONNA: You know, we were talking
one day about a lift that you
put into the ceiling. Brandi’s like, “I have an idea.” That’s all she said. STEPHANIE: Brandi took it upon
herself to create this fundraiser for the lift and try
and raise money. LISA: She had many different
motorcycle clubs that were there
supporting. DONNA: Harley and I were able to
go on a ride, he loved it. DONNA: There’s Harley all smiley
and happy in his sidecar. BRANDI: Him being in that
motorcycle, he was having a
ball. LISA: Because he could hear the
noise, he could feel it, he could see, you know, all the way down the
street, people that were supporting
them. JEFF: Brandi here puts her heart
and soul into him. DONNA: Hey, Harley deserves a
lot. He’s been through a lot, he
deserves it. BRANDI: Not that I need to say
it, but Harley knows I love him. He can’t fend for himself, he
can’t defend himself, so he has to have somebody
that’s gonna make sure that bad things don’t happen to
him. As a nurse, one of my main
duties is to advocate for my
patients. So, that’s what I do.
