Iowa Toddler In Need of Life-Saving Transplant
With the cost of a transplant often exceeding $500,000, many transplant families are unablet o
shoulder the financial burden of such a procedure. The Children’s Organ Transplant Association
(COTA) is a national charity dedicated to ()rganizing and guiding communities in raising funds for
transplant-needy patients. In Iowa, volunteers are raising funds for transplant patients like local
toddler, Rebecca Granger.
Rebecca is the daughter of Jeff and Alicia Granger. Born on June 30. 2008, Rebecca was
diagnosed with Short Gut Syndrome. The doctors at Georgetown University Hospital in Washington, D.C., have recommended a life–saving liver and small intestine transplant. An estimated $25,000 is being raised by local volunteers.
Volunteers are needed to assist with fundraising activities that will help with transplant-related
expenses. Benefit win be held on June 2, 2012 at the KC Hall in Moss Bluff. Join us for live and silent auctions, music, food, children’s activities and more. Individuals and groups interested in more infonnation can contact Community Coordinator Rita Carrier at 337.855.6195 or
