American Airlines Inducts First Flight Attendant With Special Needs and we’re here for it!
THIS WEEKEND: @AmericanAir inducts its FIRST flight attendant with special needs & a terminal illness fulfilling a dream “Princess” never thought she’d live to see: https://t.co/a3o5EKoB9Q @wis10 @CAEAirport— Emily Scarlett (@ScarlettWISTV) October 14, 2018
According to the Saving Shannie Foundation, a non-profit organization, Shannie has Down Syndrome and battles with a series of terminal airway defects.
Shantell’s mother, Deanna Miller Berry, told WIS News 10 her daughter is “beyond what someone would call a bubbly person.”
The Shannie Foundation website states Shannie is determined to share her story to help save the lives of millions of other children struggling to breathe just like her.
American Airlines got word of Shannie’s dream and since she must make the trip from Cincinnati often, the airline decided each time she flies she will be part of the staff of that flight.
We’re loving American Airline’s inclusion of everyone into their family, and making a dream come true for Shannie.
Well done American Airlines, we salute you!
