Won’t you please consider helping one of our local heart friends?

CLICK HERE to go to Hope’s COTA [Children's Organ Transplant Association] page.
All donations are tax deductible and can ONLY be used for transplant related bills for Hope.
Any money donated can be used to pay for out of pocket medical expenses
(our medical pays 90% and we are responsible for the first $1,000).
Hope has been inpatient, but we have heard that her medication will be quite expensive and
there is no limit on the amount we are out-of-pocket every year.
Any donations would be greatly appreciated.
All proceeds from fundraisers will be put in this account as well.
