Natacha's Gift of Life Drive

My name is Natacha Hatten Eaddy and I want to personally thank you for your consideration.  It is a blessing in life when one is able to do for a living the thing that brings them absolute joy.  For me it was teaching high school and coaching high school sports.  I loved the challenges of helping and watching the growth of my students throughout the school year and from one year to the next.  I believe I made a difference in many lives.  I always promised myself I would leave teaching when I could no longer give my students my very best. Though they were so compassionate and helpful, the time came when I had to honor my promise and leave the thing I loved most- it broke my heart.  I was diagnosed with Guillain Barre Syndrome, a disease that causes paralysis.  Thank goodness there is a treatment for it.  Whew, I was blessed to have recovered; shortly thereafter, I was diagnosed with Antisynthetase Syndrome, an extremely rare autoimmune disorder where your immune system attacks the body.  It has destroyed my lungs.  I am now in need of a double lung transplant.

 

As we tackle the overwhelming and daunting cost of my surgery, aftercare and very expensive medications, my family, friends and I greatly appreciate any contributions, prayers, well-wishes and encouragement.  Nothing is too small. Though I will never have my old life back, this surgery offers me a fighting chance at a new life.   Thank you all for helping to give me a fighting chance.  Should you want to donate but do not want to do so online, you may mail checks or money orders made out to me to Post Office Box 288, Gaston, South Carolina, 29053.
