Cooper, 6

"I wish for a playset."

 

During birth, Cooper lost oxygen and red blood cells. By the time he was delivered, he was no longer breathing. He had to be resuscitated and his organs began to shut down. Immediately, he was transferred to the NICU unit, where he had a series of seizures that led to brain damage.  He eventually made it home and for the next few months seemed to get better.

At nine months old, his condition took a turn when he experienced a different kind of seizure. He began to rage, day in and day out, screaming and crying. The seizures caused additional brain damage and left him reliant on a G-tube to be fed.

Now, Cooper who is non-verbal and wheelchair bound is a happy six year-old who can laugh, clap and kick his legs. In between treatments and naptime, he loves to be outside where his favorite activity is being pushed around in his wheelchair.  Being outdoors has a positive, emotional impact on him. This wish will allow Cooper and his family to enjoy something that they can do together. Your donation helps Cooper take on adventures and experience the joy of the outdoors in new and exciting ways.
