Transplant Professionals

Each transplant social worker, financial coordinator, transplant coordinator and transplant professional is literally a lifeline between the Children’s Organ Transplant Association and our families. COTA is honored to be the Trusted Leader Supporting Transplant Families … For a Lifetime.

The following comments were submitted in a recent COTA survey of transplant professionals:

COTA has been a lifesaver for many of our families. Sometimes families do not know how they will manage the financial aspect of their child’s care. The staff at COTA is well trained to understand the financial needs our families go through.

I recently had my first few experiences with COTA and I am so impressed with the response and involvement of the staff. The interaction was so personal and their investment in the patients and families is well beyond anything I could have imagined. I am very thankful that an organization of this caliber exists.

Never give up’ – COTA’s resources, tools, professionals and volunteers are always here for our families.
