High school seniors shovel neighbor's driveway at 4:30 a.m. so she could make it to her dialysis

When the weather forecast called for up to eight inches of snow in their New Jersey community, brothers Brian and Patrick Lanigan immediately thought of their neighbor Natalie Blair.

She depends on dialysis treatments -- and that meant the snowstorm could be a life or death situation.

Brian, who works as a local EMT, had shoveled the Blair family's driveway during a storm just a few days earlier, but he knew this time he would be on the job when the snowstorm struck.

It was up to his little brother Patrick to ensure their neighbor would be able to leave her house for the treatment she desperately needs.

Knowing time was of the essence, Patrick opened up his contact list and started reaching out to friends to help out.

Four of his fellow Parsippany High School seniors answered the call and volunteered to spend the night at the Lanigan house just to wake up and start shoveling at 4:30 a.m.

With everyone working together, it took less than 30 minutes to clear the fresh fallen snow.

While they hoped the storm would force their town to cancel classes, they ended up with a two-hour delayed opening, giving them just enough time to rest up before heading to school.

good for them! 
Not many kids do things for others these days and here they did something a little bit heroic.
I am glad they got a delay for school. Wish they had the day off. They deserved it!

they really earned a day off. Wonder if any of their parents excused them for the day for sleeping?

the exception would be if they WANTED to go to school that day, because good teens like that sometimes do also like school.
