About CTI

Providing Hope Today for a Healthy Tomorrow

Children’s Transplant Initiative is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded by Ross and Cheryl Witty in 2016. Their daughter Kimmy received a life-saving kidney transplant from her dad in 2011.


Transplantation is a life-changing experience and the physical and emotional challenges can be quite difficult. The Witty’s heartfelt vision was to become a part of the circle of care for fellow transplant families. Wanting parents to focus on their child, Children’s Transplant Initiative was founded to ease the burden and help lessen the fears of the transplant process. CTI provides information, services, and support to children and their families as they embark on this journey.


“Love In Action”


“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.”
– Romans 12:12-13
