Ed Cooper Medical Fund

Please join us in donating to our funding campaign for our friend, father, and partner, Ed Cooper. On September 14th, Ed suffered a stroke and brain bleed and was air lifted to Baptist Hospital in Winston Salem, NC. The amount of work and financial responsiblity has consumed his family and their lives. Ed has spent almost 3 months in ICU where he continues to face many complications. The goal is to have Ed transfered to a room where he will receive intense therapy before being released. Once released, Shannon (his girlfriend of 15 years), will be completely responsible for his care- physically and financially. During these past 3 months, Shannon has been unable to work as she spends every single day with Ed as he continues towards recovery. Shannon and Max, their 5 year old son, could use any support you can offer. Any help, even after Ed returns home, would be greatly appreciated as he has a long road to recovery.
