About Antonio Limon
With the cost of a transplant often exceeding $500,000, transplant patients 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-needy patients. Volunteers from many localities are raising funds for transplant patients like local teen Antonio Limon.
Born on October 19, 1998, Antonio was diagnosed with Chronic Renal Failure. His continuing Life has meant monthly visits of blood draws and subsequent tests.
He had been at 25% kidney function early this 2013 summer, a frightening prospect. He has, as of this writing, dropped to 18%.
The doctors at University of California, San Francisco have recommended a life-saving kidney transplant. An estimated $30,000 is being raised by volunteers from Fair Oaks, Citrus Heights, West Sacramento and Elk Grove here in California along with people from other States to join this COTA effort.

UPDATE: Antonio is currently at 13%. The doctors have put him on The Cadaver List as we cannot find a LIVE Donor to help him. Please see our Events Page for The new Poker Tournament to help raise funds for COTA in honor of Antonio.
