Children’s Organ Transplant Association ® Giving Hope… Making Miracles
Chicago, IL – With the cost of a transplant often exceeding $500,000, many transplant patients are unable to shoulder the financial burden of such a procedure. The Children’s Organ Transplant Association (COTA) is a national charity dedicated to organizing and guiding communities in raising funds for transplant-needy patients. In Chicago, volunteers are raising funds for transplant patients like local Jack Benjamin.
Born on June26, 2008, Benjamin was diagnosed with Biliary Atresia, and doctors at Children’s Memorial Hospital in Chicago performed a life-saving liver transplant December 4, 2008.
An estimated $40,000 is being raised by Chicago volunteers.
Volunteers are needed to assist with fundraising activities. Individuals and groups interested in more information can contact Campaign Coordinator Chloe Johnston at 773.203.0807 or [email protected].
