Super Trooper!

Hello, this is Cooper, our amazing son. Cooper was born 4 months early weighing just 570grams. With just a 5% chance of survival, Cooper proved with every minute that he was a fighter. His 1st year was a bumpy one to say the least. He battled Chronic Lung disease, a bleed on the brain, renal failure, NEC, sepsis and nearly lost his sight to ROP from the oxygen he needed to stay alive. This was all before he was even due to be born. His first year was traumatic and many times we feared he would not make it but this little red head has big plans and fought every step of the way! 
With everything that happened after being born so premature Cooper now has some issues that effect his daily life. He is still on oxygen and has some mobility issues. Cooper legs are weak and we are awaiting a Cerebral Palsy diagnosis. We give him daily physio and stretches to help him get stronger but he is not walking yet, but is getting stronger. We learned recently about a new innovative therapy called Gallileo Therapy which is a vibration plate therapy which helps the neuro connections and the muscles. It has had great results already with other similar children and we hope it will benefit Cooper.  It is a daily at home therapy where he would do exercises in the unit to help build muscle strength, balance and neuro connections to help him walk We are trying to raise money towards buying a Gallileo unit and its training and because of Covid restrictions we can not go down the normal routes like charity nights and events, so have turned to self fund raising. 
We hope that it will help Coopers strength and get him walking which he wants so much. We hope to then pass it onto someone else in his position that would benefit.  Covid has stopped so many of Coopers interventions so any extra help we can give him will be amazing. 
Thank you so much for taking the time to read our story.
