MOULTRIE — The Children’s Organ Transplant Association (COTA), a charity dedicated to organizing and guiding communities in raising funds for transplant-related expenses, is involved in a volunteer campaign to raise funds for a Moultrie woman in need of a lung transplant.

With the cost of a transplant often exceeding $500,000, many transplant patients are unable to take on the cost of surgery. Among them is Bonnie Griner, who was born in 1979 and later diagnosed with cystic fibrosis.
