Successful Blood Drive

Thank you to everyone who helped with the organization of the blood drive at Slater Elementary on 1/24/17, sponsored by The Children's Hospital of Colorado, as well as each and every person that took time out of their day to donate blood.  It was a very successful event.  By hosting the blood drive, Children's Hospital will credit Nolan for the blood collected and will not charge him for any blood he may need during his transplant surgery.  A win-win for everyone!!

Health Update

We are so grateful for all of the love, support, and prayers we've received from all of you!  The words of encouragement and monetary support for Nolan's health needs has been truly amazing- thank you! The past two months has been quite the journey, but I believe we are getting close to transplant!  I thought I would highlight our journey over the past couple of months to let you know where we are in the process​s:  

Sincere Gratitude

Just wanted to let everyone know that we are 1 month strong into fundraising for Nolan. Because of your generosity, COTA has raised over $35,000 in this short period of time to support Nolan in his transplant journey. It has been truly amazing to see the outpouring of love, kindness and generosity, not only from those that know the Burgett family, but also from many who don't even know the family and were touched by Nolan's story. We ask that you continue to share Nolan's story and website because without the support from everyone, we would not be where we are today. Please keep the words of encouragement coming, as well, as your comments have touched Nolan and helped guide him in strength. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!!

Hat Day at The Manning School

The Manning School, Nolan's prior middle school, hosted "Hats for Nolan" on Friday November 4, 2016 in honor of Nolan.  They raised $1000 through student donations and plan on contributing 100% of the funds to  We were pleasantly surprised to get an email from the principal, Barb Bares, who shared that Student Council came up with the idea.  We can't be more thankful and appreciative to have such a caring community of teachers, students and administrators.  Thank you so much for your support Manning!!!
