My Story

Cooper is an incredible, intelligent, kind and social little boy that was enjoying his third month of kindergarten when his life was interrupted by cancer. He has always been 10 steps ahead of his parents and is full of plans, goals and possibilities for his future. Going to sleep at night has always been as if Cooper was being forced to surrender the day, he radiates energy and is a wonderful friend. He loves riding his bike, camping, new adventures, swimming, hanging out with buddies and talking to anyone and everyone that will listen. His cancer diagnosis was a shock and has been a painfully terrifying interruption for a boy that never took a day for granted. Cooper continues to inspire his parents, friends and family with his courage, maturity and ability to navigate this storm like only a boy with big plans can do.
