The big one. Cooper’s broken heart

I know this isn’t a good time of the year to be asking for help but unfortunately Cooper is going to have his 4th open heart surgery on January 4th. He is 3 years old.

Although none of them have been easy, this one will be the hardest. They will be doing 3 different things (if all goes as planned) to his heart during this time. He already has an artificial mitral valve but it is too small so it will be replaced with a bigger one. Also, they will be cutting and taking from the pulmonary artery and replacing part of his aorta and third they will scrape and clean all the scar tissue from the rest of the aorta.

I have started this campaign to help Cooper’s parents (my daughter Kristen & son in law Dj) with the expenses they will have during this difficult time. We all live 4 hours from Arkansas Children’s Hospital so the money will go for household bills that come up during the hospital stay, gas for travel, food, and any expenses they may have.
Coop is a very smart, happy, and boy! He loves life and and if you we’re to meet him you would never think he has a broken heart. Cooper has a little brother named Kason who is 1 1/2 years old.

Being that is only a few days before Christmas I understand that we are all a little broke. So I ask if cannot help them financially would please give them the power of your prayer and keep praying for all of us to get thru this surgery.
