Melissa Gailis is the mother of Kevin Gailis.
Melissa and her husband, Brad, came to the hospital when their son, Kevin, was pushed into a table saw while he was at school. They were horrified to learn that the teacher, Dave Buckley, was drunk at the time. Kevin was taken into surgery, where the saw blade was removed and his injuries were repaired. It looked like he might lose his arm because the blood flow had been compromised, but Maggie was ultimately able to save it and Kevin was stable and awake afterward. It was proven that Buckley hadn't been drinking and Buckley came to visit Kevin in his recovery room.
She is married to Brad Gailis.
She and her husband have a son, Kevin, who was injured when he was pushed into a table saw.
