Natasha Fuller, an 8-year-old girl, living with prune belly syndrome and on the kidney transplant list received a gift from her teacher that will blow you away.
The prune belly syndrome has kept little Natasha on dialysis for up to three times per week for her whole life. She has been on and off the kidney transplant list for years, and without the transplant she wouldn’t survive much longer.
Her teacher, Jodie Schmidt, didn’t know her illness was so severe until recently and she was heartbroken. She decided to get tested to see if she could possibly be a donor match. The results came back and she filled a gift box with tissue paper and wrote “It’s a match” on the bottom of the box that she gave to Natasha’s grandmother.
It goes without saying that Natasha’s grandmother was overwhelmed with happiness and joy that her granddaughter would now have a new shot at life.
What a precious gift from her teacher who went above and beyond to help Natasha. Now she will always remember Mrs. Schmidt for as long as she lives as her teacher who saved her life.
