Cooper is a shy but funny four-year-old who loves to be a jokester. He enjoys dancing to Michael Jackson and Queen Songs like “We will Rock you!”
In June 2022, everything changed. Cooper had spiked some fevers that would only last a few hours at a time for a few weeks. He also was experiencing some leg pains. At his four-year check-up, doctors ran blood tests and the next day his pediatrician called with concerns that it might be cancer.
Cooper was taken to Randall Children’s Hospital where doctors confirmed what his parents were hoping was not true. He was diagnosed with B-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.
His treatments started immediately with high doses of steroids, bone marrow tests, and chemotherapy.
Cooper also began a clinical trial called Blina. This special immunotherapy is designed to help his body fight cancer.
Even after everything he has gone through, Cooper continues to be a happy and fun-loving little boy. Doctors will monitor his progress carefully and he needs everyone’s love and support.
Cooper will be adopted as a Sparrow to Sherwood Middle School. Students will work hard to raise money for Cooper through sponsored community service.
