Fundraising slated for Oxford girl in need of transplant
The Children’s Organ Transplant Association in Bloomington, Ind. is a national charity dedicated to organizing and guiding communities in raising funds for transplant-related expenses.
In Oxford, volunteers are raising funds for COTA in honor of transplant patients like Chelsea Wheeler, daughter of Christopher and Linda Wheeler of Oxford.
Born on Feb. 4, 2003, Chelsea was diagnosed with Intestinal Dysmotility. Doctors at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania have recommended a life-saving small bowel transplant.
Chelsea’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.
An estimated $65,000 is being raised by Oxford volunteers. Volunteers are needed to assist with fundraising activities that will help with transplant-related expenses. Individuals and groups interested in more information may contact Community Coordinator Ray Nappi, 203-305-8719 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
