On August 10th 2018, Natalya, a perfectly healthy 33 year old, went to bed as normal on a Friday night after a busy week working as a Pharmaceutical Representative.
The next morning, her husband tried to wake her after realizing she was asleep longer than usual--he was unable to get any response from her.
While she slept, Natalya or Tally as she is affectionately known by family and friends, had multiple strokes followed by a seizure.
She was rushed to Doctors Hospital in Nassau, Bahamas where she had emergency surgery to relieve the pressure around her brain.
Doctors thought that she would not survive the surgery, but she did. She has had multiple procedures since to help keep her with us and has truly been the definition of a fighter.
Once stable at Doctor's Hospital, she was airlifted to Miami, Florida to continue receiving life saving care and is currently at Kendall Regional Medical Center.
Although she has made progress, Tally has unfortunately remained in a diminished state of consciousness ever since she was found on August 11th.
The next step in her treatment is for Tally to be transferred to a rehabilitation center. There she be under the care of doctors and medical professionals who will help her regain full consciousness and improve whatever deficits may exist secondary to her brain injuries.
The expected duration of inpatient rehabilitation is 3 to 6 months however we have repeatedly been told that her road to recovery will be long.
Thankfully, Natalya does have medical insurance, however her insurance is not covering the full cost of her rehabilitation. This is why we need your help.
We love Tally so much and can not imagine our lives without her. We desperately need financial assistance to ensure that she receives the full extent of the care available.
Please donate whatever you can so that our intelligent, talented, funny, and charismatic girl can come back to us.
