Natasha Petersen is a beautifully, whimsical 45 year old; wife, daughter, sister, auntie, teacher and friend/inspiration to so many and an amazing mother to four awesome kids. Most, if not all her life, she has lived for her family...but as of November she has had to turn the attention on herself when she was diagnosed with stage two cervical cancer. But let’s just back up for a second. This is the mother who is caring and nurturing. Who is a problem solver and the person to go to for a quick laugh and a more lengthy hug. The one who always makes time for anyone, no matter their age. Her children are proof of that.She’s determined and driven. She volunteered at the high school the twins attend and cooked meals for their football programs. She was one of many who cheered on the sidelines of so many BLHS football games, all the while students coming by to give her hugs or high fives. She is a person who is easily loved.She decided to make the monumental decision to go back to school in her thirties for elementary education and has just recently started her profession as a teacher. Her school kids adore her and {we’re pretty certain!} she feels the same about them. She has most certainly found her groove at Lafayette, but due to the cancer treatment, she will not be able to return to teaching until at least April.Late December, her cervical cancer was upgraded to stage three as it had spread to the lymph system. Chemo treatment started on Monday, January 2 and will continue with radiation for the next several weeks.We have chosen to reach out for this beloved person with this Go Fund Me account to help the family to not worry about the bills, but to help them gain the confidence to get through this together. Any and all funds donated will go toward the fuel for the hour+ drive to chemo and radiation, the monumental hospital bills, reliable transportation to and from treatment, lost wages and anything else to ease the stress in this difficult time. We want to be clear that this campaign is to help the Petersen family during this time of need. All the money donated will go toward this family to allow the focus to be where it is needed; winning the battle.All proceeds will go to Natasha, Troy and their fabulous family.
