The love of a mother is amazing.  But the only thing almost as good is the love of a teacher who cares about her kids as a mother would.  This teacher might fit the bill.

Tricia Moses is a 38-year old teacher suffering from scleroderma, an autoimmune disease that turns her lungs into scar tissue.  The disease is deadly and affects the skin, blood vessels, and organs.

She was in serious need of a lung transplant, which doctors said would be the only thing to save her life.   But the woman put off her surgery because the third graders she was teaching needed to be prepared for their state examinations.

“I couldn’t leave my students because I loved them so much,” she told the New York Daily News.

The woman was diagnosed in 2011 after realizing that simply writing on the chalkboard would leave her exhausted.  She says that her muscles and joints also ached badly.  She also suffered a miscarriage.

“I coughed my child out. I knew my body couldn’t take it,” she said.

The extraordinary teacher was told that she needed a transplant back in 2012, but she kept on teaching, even bringing an oxygen tank to school.

“I was just really surprised that she was still able to work,” Moses’ rheumatologist Robyn Domsic told the Daily News. “She was requiring a lot of oxygen at that point.”

Moses held off the surgery for months so that she could get her kids through exams and they are thankful for her heroic support.  We are thankful as well.

When she finally got her surgery, she kept in touch with her students over Skype and Facetime, who wished her well.  She is now headed back home to Brooklyn to see her kids again.

“I thank God I’m coming back,” Moses told the Daily News. “I just want to get back to my students and family and raise awareness of my disease and the desperate need for donors.”
