Natalie Cooper is a 45 year-old woman who is in desperate need of a lifesaving kidney transplant. Natalie grew up in Philadelphia but now lives in Lawrenceville, Georgia where she worked as a school bus driver for over 5 years. Natalie misses being able to drive her students back and forth to school and to their homes.
Natalie was diagnosed with Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS), a debilitating disease that attacks the kidneys and causes them to fail. Transplants are lifesaving, but very expensive. Natalie needs the help of her community to make her kidney transplant a success.
Completely dependent on dialysis, she undergoes this temporary and rigorous treatment on a daily basis. Her only chance to return to good health is a kidney transplant.
Even with health insurance, Natalie is facing very high medical expenses and needs your help. Transplantation and follow-up medications are only the beginning of her out of pocket expenses. There are co-pays, deductible, transportation costs, and a lifetime of costly anti-rejection medications.
A fundraising campaign in Natalie’s honor has been established with HelpHOPELive, a nonprofit organization that has been assisting the transplant community for 30 years. All contributions are tax-deductible, are held by HelpHOPELive in the Southeast Kidney Transplant Fund, and are administered by HelpHOPELive for transplant-related expenses only. You can help make a difference in Natalie’s life. Please consider making a contribution.
On behalf of Natalie and her family, thank you for your kindness, generosity, support and prayers.
