TIME TO CELEBRATE!
Annabelle has her new liver!
Her transplant day was Thursday, August 10, 2017!
She is now back home!
With the cost of a transplant often exceeding $500,000, many transplant families are unable to shoulder the financial burden of such a procedure. The Children’s Organ Transplant Association (COTA) is a national charity dedicated to organizing and guiding communities in raising funds for transplant-related expenses. In High Point, volunteers are raising funds for COTA in honor of transplant patients like local infant, Annabelle Grace McKinney.
Annabelle is the daughter of Charity and Mike McKinney. Born in 2016, Annabelle was diagnosed with Propionic Acidemia. The doctors at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania have recommended a life-saving liver transplant. An estimated $50,000 is being raised by High Point volunteers.
