About Kennedy Williams

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 Rome, volunteers are raising funds for COTA in honor of transplant patients like local teen, Kennedy Williams. 

Kennedy is the daughter of Frederick and Pamela Williams.  Born on May 29, 1998, Kennedy was diagnosed with End-Stage Renal Disease.  The doctors at Egleston Children’s Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia, have recommended a life-saving kidney transplant. An estimated $50,000 is being raised by Rome volunteers.
