About Ian Rogers

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.  In Huntington Beach, volunteers are raising funds for COTA in honor of transplant patients like local teen, Ian Rogers. 

Ian is the son of Randall and Jill Rogers.  Born in 2002, Ian was diagnosed with Dilated Cardiomyopathy.  The doctors at UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles, California, have recommended a life-saving heart transplant.  An estimated $75,000 is being raised by Huntington Beach volunteers.
