I am writing to ask your support for Children’s Hospital, the Courage Classic, and patients like Cooper.
As many of you know, Cooper was a friend of my son’s and Cooper’s mom is a friend of mine. Cooper had a DIPG tumor in his brain stem at age 12 - he fought hard and faced physical, emotional and spiritual challenges no child should have to face. Despite his amazing strength and spirit, and the support of his amazing community, he did not survive.
You see, the type of brain tumor Cooper had currently has a ZERO percent survival rate. We are approaching two years since Cooper's passing, and I would like to see this change.
I’m riding in the Courage Classic in support of cancer research and the exceptional care Cooper and other children receive at Children’s Hospital.
I would greatly appreciate you contribution - we ride in July and our team, Climb for Coop, has a fundraising goal of $50,000. If we reach this goal, we can designate our funds for children's cancer research. I'd greatly appreciate your support, any amount will help.
I look forward to letting you know about our fundraising success.
Thanks in advance for your generous support!
