This is the Samuel Cotto Liver Transplant Fund. The funds will be used for his medical costs and related expenses not covered by insurance.

Samuel Cotto, as many of you are aware was diagnosed with hyper portal tension due to liver problems caused by a bacterial infection he had when he was a child in the rivers of Puerto Rico. We all know how medicine was back then, so they did cure the infection but did nothing with the bacteria in his body. Because of this, it took an effect on his liver. Well, the last diagnosis they gave him was that he had 10% of his liver functioning. He has to take an expensive medicine, not covered by the insurance company in order to keep his ammonia level where it should be. Other complication associated is diabetes which, by the way, he’s controlling remarkably well with his diet and exercise.. His devotion to God and his positive attitude have made him live a normal life. If anyone saw him in his daily life, would never guess that our dear Samuel Cotto Rodriguez has a liver condition or any of the things mentioned. He is a loving, caring person and has a great sense of humor!!! He’s a very respectful person and will do anything for anyone without caring for himself. This is why he has been blessed with many things. His faith in God teaches him that God is his father and that he, as his son, will not allow anything to happen to him unless he is done doing what he needs to do in this world. His love for God, and compassion for the people have him pastoring a church, in spite of his illness.Thank God for the loving and phenomenal women he has for a wife, Esther Cotto. She has been insisting in trying to get a better life for Samuel. In her search, she came across the LIVING DONOR TRANSPLANT! The family has sent out his medical records to a hospital that does these types of surgeries. The University Of Maryland Medical Center, here they have a living liver donor program. Yes HALLELUYAH!!!!! Well with the grace of God they’ve reviewed his medical records and have called the family for a consultation, with all the potential donors. The entire family will be stepping up for the love of DAD. In the mean time, your prayers and donations are immensely appreciated, and in the process you will be blessed too!!!
