According to Jamie and Brad, “COTA has provided, and continues to provide, hope and security for our family during this trying time. Since Jamie needed to stay at home with our two sons during Tyler’s transplant journey, we have depleted most of our savings over the past several years. COTA has definitely helped alleviate the stress of house payments and daily living expenses while Tyler and Jamie were at transplant. We are very grateful.”
When asked where she found her strength during these long days of hospitalization, Jamie said, “After receiving his bone marrow transplant, Tyler experienced a very high fever and terrible rash for 47 days. The medical team had very few answers, but I was determined to return to our home once the fever broke, which it did on June 11th. By June 19th we were on our way home. A true miracle for our family.”
Tyler’s transplant journey continues to have obstacles. Tyler has had many ups and downs since receiving his transplant, but according to his parents one thing has never changed … his fight to survive.
Keep Fighting, Tyler … Team COTA is cheering for you!
