Like many of you I’ve been following the Burdette’s journey. From infertility, loss and finally the joy of becoming awesome parents to Blakily and Cooper! Praise God! Now they are facing yet another obstacle. I know so many want to help! First, let us join together in prayer for this precious family. Second, If you are able please consider donating money needed to give Cooper the medical help he needs in Boston. We love you Shawn, Jordan, Blakily and Little Cooper. Here is their story:
When our rainbow baby , Cooper was born last year the pediatrician at the hospital pointed out he had some of the physical markers of a rare condition called tethered spinal cord . As he grew he developed more physical markers and started having a lot of pain. We decided to make an appointment at Boston children's hospital with one of the top neurosurgeons for this condition . He has confirmed his spinal cord is tethered and plans to do a cord release surgery in February . We are so grateful we found a surgeon that has preformed many of this procedure and that we feel comfortable with . This surgery is important because this condition can cause irreversible damage . Since he is already showing symptoms that are worsening it’s very important we have this surgery soon. We are so thankful we are able to get it corrected in February . Our family will be in Boston for 2 weeks for his surgery . Thank you for all your prayers you have prayer for our family . If you could keep covering our miracle baby in prayer as we travel and have his surgery we would really appreciate it.
