Students help epileptic teen get air medical flight

The young voice on the other end of the phone call to Angel MedFlight asks if the air ambulance company can help a fellow student at her school in Gulf Breeze, Fla. The patient is Taylor Collins, a senior at Gulf Breeze High School whose number-one goal is to be able to drive — like most other kids her age -- not be sidelined by a debilitating medical condition. Taylor Collins has been having seizures and needs to be flown by air ambulance over 500 miles to Miami for medical testing. The Collins family is without insurance and on a fixed income. Somehow they must find a way to get Taylor from Gulf Breeze to Miami. As we find out in the latest episode of Angel MedFlight's "My Real Life Moment™," a group of high school students coming together can do some magical things.
