“Parker is a true miracle because the night he was born we were told he wasn’t going to make it. All hope was lost at that point. When he was four-hours-old the doctors told us if we wanted to have him baptized, it would need to be done quickly. We chose an outfit and went to his hospital room to spend a few last moments with him. Instead, Parker just kept beating the odds day-by-day until I was able to donate one of my kidneys to him.
COTA helped us offer Parker a true second chance at life. With us near the lifetime maximum on health insurance, it is so comforting to know we are able to focus on Parker and not on how we are going to pay the bills. This gave us hope, and continues to give us hope today.”

“In our family's case, the prospect of a transplant was a worst case scenario. Isabella ingested something that caused her kidneys to quit working, and when we heard that a transplant was our next step … we had already lost hope in so many ways. Once we were introduced to COTA, we learned of their many successful transplant stories and this helped to renew our hope that Isabella was going to make it. It also gave us hope to know that the COTA fund will be with her throughout her lifetime.”
