Description: KC Taylor is a young, beautiful, intelligent and beloved teacher at her small town’s local high school. Married to her high school sweetheart, Isiah, KC works persistently every day to give her students a chance to grow, learn and achieve beyond graduation.  Known only to a few, KC is struggling with a life threatening kidney disease. After returning to the classroom KC is excitedly greeted by student Courtney Boyd. Meanwhile, star athlete Miles Dixon, up to his usual mischievous antics causes KC’s return to be far from celebratory.  KC’s health grows worse each day and her time for a transplant is running out. But, because of her faith in God – she never gives up or loses hope. Isiah’s love for KC is transparent and he wants nothing more than to find a donor for her, however he does not share the same faith in God and this creates a great stress as KC struggles to get Isiah to believe in her faith and that God will truly provide.  A week later, exhausted from returning to work too soon KC collapses in her classroom. Courtney, determined to help her favorite teacher, spends hours searching the Internet for solutions and discovers the SAVE1000™ Donate Life Campaign. Energized, she springs into action, calling a mandatory senior class meeting in the school’s gymnasium. Her classmates aren’t immediately persuaded and laugh, joke and talk loudly over her pleas. Feeling defeated, Courtney is on the verge of giving up, until an unlikely student decides to take action.
