About Lucy Hines

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 Lafayette, volunteers are raising funds for COTA in honor of transplant patients like local toddler, Lucy Hines. 

Lucy is the daughter of Seth and Anna Hines.  Born on May 27, 2014, Lucy was diagnosed with End Stage Renal Disease.  The doctors at Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis have recommended a life-saving kidney transplant.  An estimated $40,000 is being raised by Lafayette volunteers.
