HOPE FOR HUNTER MOORE

Hunter Moore was born on November 15, 2011. After several days with difficulty eating, and abnormal lab values, Hunter was diagnosed with Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency.  Alpha-1 is a genetic disorder that affects the lungs and liver. In Hunter's case causing irreparable liver damage resulting in the need for a life saving liver transplant. 

Since diagnosis Hunter has been followed by an amazing team of liver specialist at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Egleston. The doctors have monitored Hunter's liver and managed his treatment for the last four years, always knowing that a liver transplant would be needed, just watching for the right time to place him on the transplant list. 

On December 29th 2015, after just 20 days on the transplant list, Hunter received his life saving liver transplant and is now on the road to recovery.

An estimated $50,000 is being raised by Jonesboro volunteers.With the cost of a transplant often exceeding $500,000. The Children’s Organ Transplant Association (COTA) is a national charity dedicated to organizing and guiding communities in raising funds for transplant-related expenses.  Volunteers are raising funds for COTA in honor of transplant Hunter Moore.
