Specific Patient Case Study

About Rachel Smith

Rachel Smith was born on January 18, 2005 and was “the picture of health;” but was diagnosed with a rare blood disorder.

In Rachel’s case, she would most likely die in her teens after enduring serious side effects during a short life.


Children’s Organ Transplant Association®

Specific Patient Case Study

Rachel’s best option was a cord blood transplant, and she had her transplant at Duke University Medical Center on November 21, 2007.

The goal was for a full recovery by April 2008 and for Rachel to be home.


Children’s Organ Transplant Association®

Specific Patient Case Study

Due to complications, Rachel’s family has remained in Durham.

The original fund raising goal of $65,000 was met, but with their extended stay, COTA set a new goal of $175,000 with the hope that Rachel will be home by December 2009.

100% Patient Benefit

Funds raised through COTA are used for lifetime transplant expenses, not just what is needed today.

No fee for patient services over our 23 year history.

Patient Financial Needs

COTA has proven training and support programs to make fundraising successful.

So now, because of the poor economy, we feel it is the best time to speak to transplant families about fundraising.

Personal Onsite Training

COTA staff travels to your patients’ hometown for volunteer training after initial phone training is complete, and volunteers are ready to raise funds.

Personal Onsite Training

COTA is making it even easier to raise funds with onsite training and ongoing phone support – plus new searchable website resources.

Recently, COTA began work with families to identify one key campaign leader to start the campaign process.

Meeting Patient Expenses

We assist families at any stage of the transplant process, but those we can help the most are pre-transplant patients you know are advisable.

Malachi Beauchamp

MUSC Hospital


Children’s Organ Transplant Association

The Ohio American Legion has challenged Ohio Legionnaires to each contribute 50 cents to COTA kids. When the year is complete, this will amount to more than $60,000 raised for Ohio patients.

National partnerships like this help families even without large groups of volunteers.

Center Relationships


To make referring patients easier, please send all in need of financial assistance to COTA, and we will work with them to ensure they receive access to the help they need.
