Cooper is a 9-year-old, 4th grader in Pittsburgh, Pa. who is the light of his neighborhood and the ringleader of fun for all the neighborhood kids. There isn't a sport he does not like and is known to bring kids together for pick up baseball, football or soccer. In the winter, Cooper is always the first one to run outside on a snowy day looking for someone to sled with. And without question, he’s always willing to welcome new kids to the block. He is such a sweet and caring boy, full of life and joy, with a heart of pure gold.
Cooper was just handed one of the toughest diagnoses known to the pediatric population. After experiencing a few headaches, he underwent emergency surgery at UPMC Children's to remove an aggressive and life-threatening brain tumor. He has recently been transferred to St. Jude’s Hospital in Tennessee for additional, long term care.
Cooper is the youngest of 5 children and has a new puppy named "Spooky." His loving mom Jeanne and military dad Bradley are very active with all of their children and their schools within our Pine Richland community here in Pittsburgh. The Nindl's are always the first to help out neighbors in need but would be the last to ever ask for any help or assistance for themselves.
Please join “Cooper’s Crew” to help raise money to support the Nindl family so they don't have to stress over finances in the next couple of months, but can rather love on their babies and focus on Cooper's recovery and treatment.
Updates of his progress will be posted soon.
