Heart Transplant Recipient

“Monty’s need for a transplant occurred literally overnight when a virus attacked his liver. We went from enjoying our summer to living full-time at the transplant center. While sitting at his bedside a social worker handed me some information that included a brochure about the Children’s Organ Transplant Association (COTA) and suggested we think about fundraising. I called the 800 number and I instantly found a sense of relief about the mounting medical bills and my unexpected and unpaid leave from my job. COTA cared so much about what was happening with Monty and with me. My husband and I instantly felt supported as we travelled Monty’s transplant journey. COTA gave us HOPE.”
