Incoming Morristown West Senior Rylee Linkous is preparing for her senior year of high school. But she's already worried about what will happen with her grandmother and her younger brother Xander, AKA Booder. Booder was injured as an infant when their drug-addicted mother rolled over onto him and smothered him in her sleep. Booder is growing and it's getting harder and harder for their grandmother, who took custody shortly after the incident, to load Booder into van by herself. Rylee handles the heavy lifting now but when she goes off to college, she worries how her grandmother will cope. With the help of friends and family, Rylee started a gofundme drive to raise money for a wheelchair accessible van for her family at https://www.gofundme.com/f/wheelchair-van-for-booder?qid=b46e1dbb74eba55bde7d7f9bca62e7ca
