Story #26
Air Date: January 8, 2014

Brittney Balch is a volunteer EMT in her small Washington town and a volunteer with the local 4H-Club teaching kids, some with disabilities, how to ride horses.

Brittney spends countless hours helping others despite having an incredibly difficult past few years. Her 4-year-old son Austin has leukemia and her husband who signed up to be a volunteer EMT with her died suddenly of heart failure.

Brittney missed only week of EMT training, the week her husband died. It is her goal to raise money to get more AED’s placed in the community.
