An eight-year-old from Oklahoma named Natasha Fuller has been living with her grandparents in Wisconsin for two years, so she can get dialysis in Milwaukee while she waits for a kidney transplant.
She has a rare disorder where your stomach muscles don’t develop right. So it causes all kinds of problems, and she needs a transplant soon . Luckily she has a pretty amazing teacher at her school.
Her name is Jodi Schmidt, and she recently decided to donate one of HER kidneys . . . got tested . . . and they were a match.
And the way she gave Natasha’s family the news was pretty great. She asked her grandmother, Chris, to come into school. And Chris says she thought Natasha was in TROUBLE at first.
But then Jodi gave her a pink box with a note inside that said, “It’s a MATCH.” She immediately knew what it meant, and started crying. And the school’s principal got the whole thing on video.
Natasha is dealing with an infection right now. But her doctors are hoping it clears up later this month, and then they’ll do the transplant.
