Raising funds for Jeff Cooper"Coop"

Hello! I am Jeff Cooper's sister, Jesse. I am trying to raise funds on his behalf to help my parents pay his medical bills. January 17th,  he began having violent gran-mal seizures. He spent over a week in the hospital he had 11 seizures just in 1 day. He returned home for only a week before suffering a stroke to his brain stem. This is his second stroke. This one has left him with left side paralysis. When Jeff was only 14, he was diagnosed with a brain tumor. The brain tumor was the size of a tennis ball. ( Not exaggerating) Dr's successfully removed as much as they could, but had to turn to radiation to get what was left.  Had we known the damage that radiation would cause later down the road is a tough pill to swallow.  The radiation weakened the blood vessels in his brain as to that of an elder. This caused his first stroke that left him in the hospital and Shepard Center in 05'. Instead of celebrating his 27th birthday,  he was fighting for his life that day.  And again the radiation has caused his vessels to look like a congested highway, he has several blockages. We have learned that he carries a gene that makes him prone to clots as well.  Jeff is now in inpatient rehabilitation and then will go to outpatient. We do not know how long this will take.  We are well over 200k already in medical fees. Jeff cannot work and is 100% disabled. Between the medical bills, parking, the cafeteria,gas ro and from, it has broken the bank on us all. I am asking if anyone can or would  like to pitch in, please lets get together to help him.  This is very taxing on our entire family. We all need rest. If you could only spare fifty cents that would help. All donations will be greatly appreciated.  Please keep sharing this and keep my brother in your prayers. You have no idea what a mental set back this has put on him. Both mentally and physically. He's the least deserving person I know to have gone through so much. I would  give anything to trade places with him. Those who know him well would probably agree enough is enough. God Bless you all. Love,  The Cooper family
