Letter from the Co-Founders:

Change is sometimes difficult. Change is often times unwanted. We have all experienced changes in our lives we could never fathom due to Covid. But, there are some things that don't change. Children get sick. Children need life saving organ transplants. The families of these children need never ending support. The sole mission of CTI is to provide that support, and it would not be possible without each and every one of you. THANK YOU for sharing this journey with us, together we are making a difference.

Stay healthy, stay safe and stay blessed,
This summer marks the 4 year anniversary of CTI's official "launch"!

Thanks to you...
CTI has provided support to over 125 pediatric transplant families.
Thanks to you...
CTI has provided over $40,000 in financial assistance.
Thanks to you...

Your continuous support allows us to provide for these families in need.  If you would like to commit to helping us serve children and their families, please click the link below and sign up to be a monthly giving partner or make a one time donation.
CTI Families Update
The first half of 2021 we said good bye to 4 of our families that got the green light to go back home and start their new normal after their child received the gift of life! This is always such an exciting time, but also a very anxious time as many of them are heading back home to another state, very far from the comfort of our great Texas Medical Center and their transplant team. We pray they will feel apart of the CTI family always. Our 5 hospitality apartments remain full with an active waiting list. Thank you to all of you who support our mission to come alongside these families on their transplant journeys!
CTI has a couple of great fundraising events coming up in September and November! Mark your calendars and come help support the kids and their families we are blessed to serve!
