His mother, Diana Moore, says he formed a special relationship with one ProVia driver.
“It reminds me that there are compassionate people in the world,” said Diana Moore, Alex’s mother. “The ProVia driver, just you know all the time, even if Alex isn’t out – if it’s raining or he’s napping or eating or playing with his siblings – he still beeps every time he goes by. It just becomes a very special little friendship and you know, this is what gets us through our day.”
They connected on Facebook and that’s when ProVia gave Alex a teddy bear, blanket, and water bottle to hopefully make his day.MORE NEWS: FBI Investigates Slew Of Threats At Pittsburgh-Area School Districts
