The Need Is Real
This is a typical eight-week radiation treatment scenario that a child diagnosed with pediatric cancer will undergo. This shows the mountain of expenses families would face if not for the Super Cooper Little Red Wagon Foundation providing a convenient home away from home as well as many other support service such as food, fuel cards and parking passes.
We’ve Been There
Super Cooper’s Little Red Wagon Foundation grew out of Elise and Justin Herman’s experience as their son, Cooper, was treated for brain and spinal cancer. They saw parents sleeping in chairs in hospital rooms or struggling with hotel and food bills while trying to focus on their family’s needs. So, even amid the strain of caring for Cooper, the family started the foundation to help others.
Cooper lost his battle on January 19, 2014, but his life continues to inspire us. Our memory will always be of his infectious laugh, love of music, desire to play even through the pain and fatigue and the courage that came shining through as he asked his healthcare providers before a procedure, “How are you today?” His smiles and hugs he gave in the face of so many obstacles will be forever in our hearts. Cooper’s memory lives on through Super Cooper’s Little Red Wagon Foundation.
