On March 30th, 2012, we found out our tough little eight year-old was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (A.L.L.). Needless to say, we were stunned--especially because he didn't look or feel sick. We spent the first five days in the hospital with him as he got a lumbar puncture, marrow extractions, port placement, bone biopsy, blood transfusion, and several rounds of chemo therapy.
What a nightmare!
No words can describe what it's like watching them pump poison into your little baby. While we weren't ready for his prognosis, we are ready to fight, and so is he. He's our Super Cooper.
We hate this disease, but we believe in a GREAT, LOVING GOD who heals. We also believe in the power of prayer and we ask you to join us in praying.
How YOU can help
In Honor of Cooper and the Gokee family PhoenixONE is joining with the Phoenix Children's Hospital to raise funds for the Gokees and many other families battling cancer and blood disorders.
By donating through this page you will be providing food vouchers for these families allowing them to purchase food from the Children's Hospital cafeteria and remain close with their children. You are helping by giving them one less thing to worry about.
