Let's Rally for Natty!

Natalie Kammer is a bright, shining light who spreads happiness and positivity to everyone she meets.  She has the biggest heart of any 16 yr. old I know!  She is a star golfer and a member of the varsity basketball team.  She is the most incredible daughter, big sister to Jack, niece, granddaughter and friend.  

Natalie started experiencing shortness of breath this summer while playing basketball.  After many, many tests and visits to doctors, she was finally diagnosed with Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension (CTEPH).  This is a very rare condition and it is unknown at this time how she got it.  The most simple way to explain what's going on, is that she has many blood clots in her lungs that are putting a lot of stress on her heart.  The only way to treat this condition, is to see a specialized team of doctors in San Diego, CA, that will perform surgery on her to remove each of the blood clots.  This is a very invasive surgery.  The GOOD news is that Natalie is young, strong, otherwise healthy and SO POSITIVE!  The surgery has a very high success rate, so once she recovers, she should be able to go back to an active life.  

The family does have insurance, but there is a LOT that is not covered!  Additionally, they will need to spend 3-4 weeks in California for the surgery which of course means more time away from work.  We want to help ease the stress and worry about where the money will come from, so that they are able to focus on whats most important - Natalie!

We understand this is a tough time for a lot of people, so if you are not able to donate, we understand.  We ask that you pray, send healing and love to the Kammer family, and please share this fundraiser in hopes of it reaching others that may feel called to assist financially.

Thank you to everyone that has messaged, dropped off gifts, put Natalie and her family in your prayers, and offered your help.  The family is beyond appreciative!
