Natasha was born with prune belly syndrome which leads to urinary tract disease, causing the kidney to break down eventually. Natasha needed a new kidney and had been traveling to the hospital three times a week for treatment. She’s even been separated from her parents and twin sister for two years to live with her grandma so she could be closer to the hospital and receive specialized care. However, even with constant care, her frequent infections kept bumping her off the waiting list for a transplant, causing more pain for the little girl and more distress for the family.
When Mrs. Schmidt caught wind of the little girl’s severe health problems, she wanted to take action. She first consulted her husband and kids and secretly got tested to see if she could be a suitable donor for Natasha. Following her results, Mrs. Schmidt called grandma down to the school to share her news! When grandma opens the box and pulls out the stuffing, she immediately has tears streaming down her face.
