Ellie Meets the Press!

Ellie had the opportunity to interview with our local news station this week. We were all very nervous about this beforehand but so very glad we stepped out of our comfort zone and met with them. The interview highlighted our giving Tuesday campaign and the need for support from our community in finding a living donor, and the response was tremendous! Many gave so selflessly and generously to COTA and we have several individuals interested in being tested as a living donor!!!
It was also Ellie’s first time talking publicly about her disease and she did great! This time of reflection for her brought some sadness afterwards, which led to some good opportunities to talk about everything she’s dealing with and gauge how she’s coping. We’re so proud of how far she has come and the strong girl she is becoming!
