Success Story

Cairo Cole

Upper Marlboro, Maryland

Age: 3

Date of Transplant:  September 22, 2020

Liver Transplant Recipient

Medstar Georgetown University Hospital

Washington, D.C.


COTA has been such a blessing for our family throughout Cairo's liver transplant journey to date; we are so very grateful for all they have done and continue to do. This journey has been filled with emotions, fear and uncertainty. Thanks to COTA, we have not stressed about how the medical bills would get paid now and throughout Cairo's lifetime. COTA allows us to focus soley on Cairo's health. We have been able to be there for our little boy emotionally without feeling the weight of the financial burden associated with a life-saving transplant.
