My Story

Cooper is baby A in a set of triplets. He is very loving. When he goes to doctor appointments he makes sure to get a sticker or surprise for his sisters, and then gives his to mom or dad. He loves to give to others and is rarely thinking about himself. When I told him that his eye was sick with Cancer... he said, "Mommy... how can my eye be sick when I am not?" He has been very brave and never really complained. He hates goofy medicine and eye drops more than anything. He loved staying at the Ronald McDonald house. Last night for the first time I heard him pray for God to make him better so he doesn't have to go to the doctors so much. It was kind of sad. He just wants to be like his sisters. He is a typical 4 year old. Loves to ride bikes and scooters, play with cars, draw and color, and being outside (even though he has to wear sun glasses.) Cooper wants to thank all of you honoring him. He shaved his head last night in honor of all the other little kids with cancer.
