My Story

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. Volunteers are raising funds for COTA in honor of transplant patients like local baby, Jase Snevely. Jase is the one year old son of Michael and Jamie (Boswell) Snevely. Jase was diagnosed October 9 th 2015 with stage 4 high risk Neuroblastoma that has metastasized to his bones and his skull. It was taking up over 70% of his abdominal cavity compressing his diaphragm making it difficult for him to breathe. We believe the doctors have caught his cancer barely in the nick of time to save Jase's life. The doctors at Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago, Illinois, have recommended two life-saving stem cell transplants with the probability of needing more in the future.  Jase is now receiving treatment on Colorado in a continued  Immunotherapy roadmap.  Since these costs are so daunting, our community is working together to raise funds for COTA ( Children's Organ Transplant Association) in honor of Jase S. : http://www.cotaforjases.com/   Thank you for supporting me and the more than 300,000 kids worldwide who will be diagnosed with cancer this year. By sharing the gifts of your time, talent and money with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, you're supporting research to give all kids with cancer a better chance for a cure.
