_ When it comes to making sure that her disabled grandson gets the education he deserves, there’s nothing 76-year-old Shi Yuying won’t do. The elderly woman has been making eight daily trips pushing his to and from his school for the past four years, and plans to continue doing it for as long as she can walk.
… The 9-year-old was diagnosed with cerebral palsy when he was two and his parents divorced a couple of years later. His mother remarried several times and his father went to work out of the area to support him and pay for his treatments. So he fell in the care of his grandmother. She not only pushes the boy to and from school several times a day, but she also massages his limbs and prepares all kinds of herbal medicines for him. The boy’s school is located just under two miles away from home, but the 76-year-old woman has to make the trip to and from school eight times a day. That means she walks about 15 miles a day, half of that pushing a wheelchair.
