Co-Workers Donate Sick Days to Teacher Whose Child Was Diagnosed With Cancer

Teachers donate 100 sick days to coworker whose child was diagnosed with cancer

A high school football coach and his family are going through the unimaginable: Their baby daughter was diagnosed with cancer. 

But David Green, who is from Huntsville, Alabama, didn’t have enough sick days to stay with his daughter Kinsley as she goes through chemotherapy in Birmingham, WHNT reported

Kinsley’s mother, Meghan Green, asked on Facebook if David’s coworkers, would donate extra sick days so David could be there as Kinsley receives treatment.

Within days, other teachers donated more than 100 sick days to David, who figured he’d need about 40 days, WHNT reported.

One teacher, who is forging her own battle against cancer, donated two days to David.

“If I had more to give, I would give him more,” Wilma DeYampert told WHNT.
