On July 12,1998 Cooper was the victim of a Near Drowning. On that date his life was changed forever as well as his family's lives. Cooper has always been a fighter and he fought through this too! Doctors didn't expect him to live through the night, but he stayed strong. Two days later he began to come off of the respirator and breathe on his own, no problem. That was the good news - the bad news was he had severe brain damage that doctors told us he may never recover from.
Though Cooper has progressed a lot, he still has a long way to go. Your continued support and prayers help him and his family get through these trying times. Please continue to pray for his recovery.
