Hill in Virginia, according to Taliah Miller, media relations specialist with Encompass Digital Media.

 James Blodgett made headlines at just 5 months old when he stopped breathing on his way to the hospital in April.

Thanks to school bus driver David Webb, who administered the CPR that kept the infant alive, James is taking his first tentative steps at nearly 13 months old. 

But because of a seizure disorder, James and his family are constantly in and out of hospitals and clinics. They are reaching out to the community for help with health and travel expenses as well as groceries, car maintenance, bills and safety precautions for their home.
