“Once our tiny baby received her heart transplant the reality of hospital bills, an unpaid mortgage, lack of a paycheck, food and shelter for our other girls all became very stressful. I will never forget the day I answered the phone and it was the CEO of the Children’s Organ Transplant Association (COTA). He asked me how we were doing and I told him Elena Zoe had received a new heart. I could hear the excitement in his voice as he told me not to worry; COTA was able to help. I was stunned and thanked him for what seemed hours. If COTA had not been there at that moment for our family, we would have lost our home. Calling COTA once we learned our baby needed a new heart was one of the best decisions we ever made. COTA gave us HOPE.”
