Loveland Baby In Need of Life-Saving Transplant

Loveland, Ohio -- With the cost of a transplant often exceeding $500,000, many transplant families 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-related expenses. In Loveland, volunteers
are raising funds for COTA in honor of transplant patients like local baby, Henry Rogers.

Henry is the son of Elizabeth and Greg Rogers. Born in 2016, Henry was diagnosed with End Stage Renal Disease. The doctors at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center in Ohio, have recommended a life-saving kidney transplant.  An estimated $70,000 is being raised by Loveland volunteers.

Volunteers are needed to assist with fundraising activities that will help with transplant-related expenses.  Individuals and groups interested in more information can contact Community Coordinator Devyn Griesser at 513.545.3755 or devyngriesser1@gmail.com. Media representatives may contact the campaign Public Relations Coordinator Lisa Everson at 513.460.0741 or lisa_everson@hotmail.com for more information about the family or the COTA community fundraising campaign.

Donations may be mailed to the Children’s Organ Transplant Association, 2501 West COTA Drive, Bloomington, Indiana, 47403. Checks or money orders should be made payable to COTA, with “In Honor of Henry R.” written on the memo line of the check. Secure credit card donations are also accepted online at www.COTAforHenryR.com.

Henry’s family has asked for assistance from the Children’s Organ Transplant Association. The organization’s priority is to assure that no child or young adult is denied a transplant or excluded from a transplant waiting list due to lack of funds. One hundred percent of all funds raised are used for patients’ transplant-related expenses.
