“The Children’s Organ Transplant Association (COTA) has been essential to our lives. COTA funds allowed us to focus on Everett and put his needs first instead of panicking and stressing about money. COTA funds made it possible for us to travel between our home in Maryland and his transplant center in North Carolina to alternate taking care of him. We made that switch 17 times and each time COTA was on the road with us. Since Everett’s diagnosis we have been billed for thousands of dollars in co-pays and prescription medications. What would we have done without COTA? The overwhelming outpouring of support from our community to COTA in honor of Everett gave us so much hope … hope we desperately needed during some very difficult and dark days.”
