Your gifts can support students like Natasha

Natasha

Last year, Advocate Health Care and Aurora Health Care joined together to create Advocate Aurora Health, the 10th largest not-for-profit health system in the country. Your generosity will continue to make health care more accessible and compassionate for each person we serve. Here, we’re sharing stories about people, just like you, who are making a difference.

When Natasha’s mom, Debra, got the call that her daughter had received a full-paid scholarship to Kradwell School, she cried tears of joy.

“I was paying for tuition from a loan, but I was only able to afford the interest prior to receiving this gift,” Debra shared. “This is such a blessing.”

Kradwell School is a private alternative school on the Aurora Behavioral Health campus in Wauwatosa that helps students dealing with a variety of challenges to succeed in a personalized learning environment. Natasha has cognitive disabilities and was bullied in the past; she’s grateful to be around the other students who can relate. “I’m glad to have the opportunity to learn new things like art, science and math,” Natasha said.

Natasha’s scholarship was paid for by a generous anonymous donor. You can support a Kradwell student for the 2019-2020 school year. To learn more, contact Judi Strout at Judi.Strout@aurora.org.
