Our Story

Henry is the son of Elizabeth and Greg Rogers. Born in 2016, Henry was diagnosed with End Stage Renal Disease. The doctors at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center in Ohio have recommended a life-saving kidney transplant. An estimated $100,000 is being raised by community volunteers.  

The Children’s Organ Transplant Association (COTA) is helping Henry's friends and family raise funds in honor of baby Henry. COTA is a national charity dedicated to organizing and guiding communities in raising funds to assist with transplant-related expenses.

  2. Please help spread the word to your friends and family. There is an exponential level of power in friends telling friends and each one contributing even a small amount to the cause.

  • Rick Lofgren, COTA President

    Greetings from COTA! I want to congratulate the COTA for Henry R volunteer team for a great effort raising funds for the campaign in honor of little Henry! When I set the campaign fundraising goals with all of our families, I try to do so knowing that some communities and volunteer teams have more developed resources and connections than others, and in fundraising these are critical to success. With this in mind, I usually suggest a goal to COTA patients that I believe is needed for any patient’s long-term expenses and transplant-related costs, and the goal generally reflects the next four to five years of out-of-pocket costs. For example, most of our patients will have $5,000 in annual co-payments, deductibles, and medications, as well as another $5,000 or more of additional costs for clinic visits. This could mean $15,000 - $20,000 for these costs alone for any patient in two or three years after transplant. In this case, because your team and supporters have done such a great job leading up to the volunteer meeting, and with Henry’s ongoing care as he awaits transplant, I spoke with Elizabeth this week and suggested that we amend the goal to better reflect the long-term expenses. Because of this, I have raised the goal for the COTA for Henry R campaign from $70,000 to $100,000 to reflect what I believe will be actual costs going forward for the next several years. Thank you for all the work and support you have provided to this point, and please keep Henry and the Rogers family in your prayers as he continues along his transplant journey!
