Charity Partner: Children's Organ Transplant Assoc
Nobody should be denied the opportunity to live normal lives because their loved ones cannot or are not able to pay the tremendous cost of a life-saving procedure. It is with this goal that we have decided to help COTA in easing the stress for families in need of a transplant. An average of $100,000 is needed by families per procedure - our goal is to help as many as we can.
