About JD


- 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 Lynn Haven, volunteers are raising funds for COTA for J.D. Stark.

J.D. is the son of Angela and Jason Stark. Born in 2009, J.D. was diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Failure. The doctors at Florida Hospital in Orlando have recommended a life-saving kidney transplant. An estimated $70,000 is being raised by Lynn Haven volunteers.
