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. Volunteers are raising funds for COTA in honor of transplant patients like local baby, Jase Snevely.
Jase was diagnosed at one year old. He is the son of Michael and Jamie (Boswell) Snevely. Jase was diagnosed October 9 th 2015 with stage 4 high risk Neuroblastoma that has metastasized to his bones and his skull. It was taking up over 70% of his abdominal cavity compressing his diaphragm making it difficult for him to breathe. We believe the doctors have caught his cancer barely in the nick of time to save Jase's life. The doctors at Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago, Illinois, have recommended two life-saving stem cell transplants with the probability of needing more in the future. Since these costs are so daunting, our community is working together to raise funds for COTA ( Children's Organ Transplant Association) in honor of Jase S.
** Update ** Jase will be starting trial treatment in New York Very Soon!
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE FOR KEEPING JASE IN YOUR PRAYERS!
