Nat's fund to fight MS

In high school, some of our biggest worries were broken hearts, driving tests and getting written up for our uniform skirts being too short. College transformed these worries into choosing a major, living on our own in different states and attempting to wake up for that 8am class... then real life kicked in. We were yet again in different states, getting jobs, paying bills and still struggling to figure out a path and find our place. We’ve been as far as two coasts, 3,000 miles and 3 times zones a part. We’ve gone months, even years without seeing each other face to face, but no matter what, when we do… it’s like our high school uniforms are back on. We've never lost that connection.

When I found out that Nathalie had been diagnosed with MS, I have never felt more vulnerable and protective at the same time. This was a whole new set of worries that was completely out of the ordinary. I needed to help. Over the last 10 years we've been there for each other no matter the circumstances and this will be no different. I'm writing this to bring awareness to her situation and to ask for your help. I have two fundraisers below and if you can contribute anything, it would mean the world.

With a new job in Florida and troublesome healthcare, bills are piling up for Nat. A 4 night stay at a hospital, medication that isn't covered, new treatments being added to her routine every week and all while still trying to pay rent... this is not something anybody should be expected to handle on their own. If you can help in any way to relive some of this pressure, please do - your smallest contribution can make the biggest difference.
