We have been extremely busy with fundraising over the last few years to create a home for Cooper that he can live in as he grows. We have been overwhelmed by people’s generosity and help. Cooper’s new bedroom is fantastic and bath time is so much easier and comfortable
We are still undergoing some renovations, thankfully outside. This is to create level access into the garden which is also Cooper’s main exit and access from the house. It will also contain a swing frame for a special swing, a spa pool enclosure and to create a larger access to assist with getting Cooper’s wheelchair van on to the drive.
We are raising funds to give Cooper hydrotherapy in his own home. A larger spa pool will mean he can benefit from hydrotherapy at a time that suits him and as often as he needs it. Finding such facilities with suitable changing space as he is growing is proving difficult and is often time restricted.
Cooper is 5 years old and daily life for him and his family is sometimes difficult as he grows. Cooper needs regular medical suction to breathe through a tracheostomy. His muscles are very weak and he cannot move himself or sit up. He is a dead weight to lift around manually. He suffers from very weak head, neck and core muscles resulting in these being low tone and then will often have high tone and uncontrolled movements in his arms and legs resulting in him being very stiff. A warm pool helps relieve some of these problems and assist with stretching so he is more comfortable. He also loves swimming.
With the support of Tree of hope, we are raising funds for a spa pool and the enclosure.
The funds raised will be added to any charity funding we secure.
Thank you so much for supporting Cooper
