Rick Lofgren, President & CEO of COTA
Greetings from COTA! I want to congratulate the COTA for Jace J volunteer team for a great effort raising funds for the campaign in honor of Jace! When I set the campaign fundraising goals with all of our families, I try to do so knowing that some communities and volunteer teams have more developed resources and connections than others, and in fundraising these are critical to success. With this in mind, I usually suggest a goal to COTA patients that I believe is needed for any patient’s long-term expenses and transplant-related costs, and the goal generally reflects the next four to five years of out-of-pocket costs. For example, most of our patients will have $5,000 in annual co-payments, deductibles, and medications, as well as another $5,000 or more of additional costs for clinic visits. This could mean $20,000 - $30,000 for any patient in two or three years after transplant. In this case, because your team and supporters have done such a great job with the campaign, and with Jace’s ongoing care following his transplant, I spoke with Rebecca this week and suggested that we amend the goal to better reflect the actual expenses. Because of this, I have raised the goal for the COTA for Jace J campaign from $50,000 to $75,000 to reflect what we believe will be actual costs going forward for the next several years. Thank you for all the work and support you have provided to this point, and please keep the entire Jones family in your prayers as Jace continues along his transplant journey!

Jace is a strong boy and so are the two of you! Lots of love, hugs, and support for the 3 of you! Your TEAM outside of your Stanford world is strong, determined and willing to do whatever it takes to get you all back home permanently. I love you more than you can imagine. No, you can imagine. You have a child of your own and you get it. :)
Love, Mom
Now that we have begun this fundraising journey, I feel very confident that we are going to get an unbelievable amount of community support! It is going to be awesome and you will not have to worry about anything other than loving on that sweet boy! I love you all!
