Chris Smith: She got her RV and thanks many at Piner, in Sonoma County and beyond

Her health is a real struggle. But Jessica Buscho couldn’t be feeling much better about what people at Piner High School, all through Sonoma County and beyond have done for her and her family. More than 600 individuals responded to Jessica’s unusual but potentially life-or-death request for help to buy a recreational vehicle. … She needs a camper so that she can get to clinical trials in Orange County without risking exposure to COVID-19 at motels, restaurants and public restrooms. … She was elated earlier this year to be accepted into a promising clinical trial at UC Irvine, but the pandemic made a huge challenge of her getting to and staying in Orange County.
