Teacher Donates Kidney To Student
MILWAUKEE (WKOW) – A first grade teacher in Oakfield, outside of Milwaukee, is going above and beyond the call of duty for one of her students.
Jodi Schmidt is donating a kidney to the 8-year-old girl.
Natasha Fuller was born with kidney disease and she needs dialysis to stay alive.
But, doctors said to keep on living, the eight year old needed a transplant.
"She’s sweet and she’s, she’s very sick, but she’s always happy, " Schmidt told our Milwaukee affiliate, WISN.
The little girl’s grandmother, Chris Burelton, says, “Her and her husband and her family are our family now forever.”
Schmidt, has three young children of her own.
The transplant surgery is planned soon.
I took a local story but it is being covered nationally.
