Support for Hudson-Deming Family

It is with heavy hearts that we share the passing of 12-year-old Cooper Deming. He died peacefully at home on May 9, in the comforting presence of his parents. 

Many of you know Cooper’s story: After an onset of double vision in June 2016, an MRI showed a tumor in Cooper's brain. Thereafter, he bravely faced a variety of intensive treatments and therapies, with many ups and downs along the way. After a period in which Cooper’s strength and balance deteriorated rapidly, an MRI in April 2017 revealed the tumor had grown. Within a month, this deadly and inoperable brain tumor claimed his life.

In remembrance of Cooper, we invite you to join us at a memorial service Saturday, May 27 at 10 a.m. in the auditorium of North High School, 2960 N. Speer Blvd., Denver, 80211. A reception will follow in the school cafeteria. Please feel free to pass along this announcement to others.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you consider a donation to the Denver-based Morgan Adams Foundation, which funds children’s cancer research. Scott and Amy were surprised to learn just how underfunded this field of study is. To donate, go to, and click on the Donate button at the upper right of the home page to get to the “Make A Donation” page. When asked which event or project you are donating for, select “Cooper Deming Memorial Fund” from the drop-down menu. 

In addition, the fundraising effort on this GoFundMe page continues. The goal is to help Cooper’s family with the financial burden that comes with this type of major medical issue. As Cooper’s condition deteriorated, neither Scott nor Amy were able to work. They now begin the process of putting the pieces of their lives back together, committed to the well-being of their family, which includes 10-year-old twins, Calvin and Helen. Funds collected here will be used to help pay for funeral expenses and household and medical bills. Relief from these stresses will also allow the family to focus their energy on healing and recovery. 

Scott and Amy remain deeply grateful for the support of family, friends, neighbors and the community.
