I just received this info from Dan Meyer - a gift fund for Natasha


Our own Sword Swallower Natasha Veruschka Queen of Swords recently suffered a sad loss when her husband, manager, and best friend of many years, Terrance Shands passed away yesterday, Monday, November 15 at 3:20pm in St. Luke's hospital New York.

Several of us in SSAI and in the sideshow and sword swallowing communities who know Natasha and Terry are rallying together to show our support for Natasha by raising money to buy flowers and/or a gift as a token of our sympathy.

To make a donation and have your name added to the list, you can contribute $5, $10, $25, $50 (or any amount you choose, no amount is too large or too small):


SSAI will collect the donations via PayPal for the next few days, order flowers, and add the names of everyone who contributes to the card.

If you would like to just send a payment direct via PayPal, you can log into your PayPal account, and send the donation directly via PayPal to: SSAI@swordswallow.org

Please specify in the notes area that the donation is for the "Natasha Veruschka Gift Fund", and if you would like to add a brief note for Natasha, we will try to include it on the card if possible.

If you know anyone who knows Natasha and might be interested in adding to her gift, please forward this on to them.

If you prefer not to make a donation, we apologize for the inconvenience of bothering you, but ask that you keep Natasha in your thoughts and prayers.

Thanks for your support of a fellow sword swallower.
