About Marty Brown
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 the small town of Corry, Pennsylvania, volunteers are raising funds for COTA in honor of transplant patients like local man, Marty Brown.
Marty is the son of Robert and Pamela Brown. Born on December 8, 1992, Marty was diagnosed with Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy. The doctors at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center in Pennsylvania have recommended a life-saving heart transplant. An estimated $100,000 is being raised by volunteers in honor of Marty.
