I'm going to be fine," said Tolsma of her illness. "But my fear is I don't want to leave the kids without a parent. I think of that all the time.

The Made In America Store, known for selling 100% American made products, is stocking their book shelves with Robin Tolsma’s book, “Everything Changed.” The book talks about how Flight 3407 crashed with Robin’s husband onboard and how she is trying to change some legislation to deter pilot error in the future. Robin Tolsma will also donate a portion of the funds to organizations that help military families.

Robin Tolsma's book talks about how her life drastically changed on February 12th, 2009 when Flight 3407 plummeted out of the frozen sky and crashed, killing her husband Darren Tolsma on board and 48 other individuals on the aircraft including one man in the home the plane had hit. Speculation swirled around Western New York and the nation as to how something like this could happen. 50 people total were killed in the accident and many families were affected by the tragedy.

After the media attention and the public "Thank you's" to the first responders and clean up crews subsided, Tolsma and the families affected by the accident set their goal on changing some rules and regulations to have better pilot training.
The new federal Aviation Administration, or FAA bill, that robin is trying to pass, states that new pilots require at least 1,500 hours devoted to flight time upon being hired as opposed to the current 250 hours flying time needed today. The new piece of legislation has passed the House of Representatives but is on hold at the Senate.

"People like Robin Tolsma are very important," said New York Congress Representative, Chris Lee. "When you attach a voice and a story to a piece of legislation - if that doesn't move congressmen and senators, they shouldn't be here."
Robin Tolsma is dealing with more than just the accident and heading the movement to change the FAA rules. Tolsma was diagnosed seven years ago with the autoimmune disease lupus and just a few months before Darren's passing, she discovered she had leukemia. With what looked like the odds being against her, she is still more concerned about her children.

"I'm going to be fine," said Tolsma of her illness. "But my fear is I don't want to leave the kids without a parent. I think of that all the time."
