Check presentation to Vandy

On Wednesday, September 28, 2013, The Cooper Trooper Foundation presented a check for $30,000.00 to Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt. This gift is the 2nd installment of a $100,000.00 Endowed Fund set up by CTF with Children’s Hospital, specifically for pediatric cancer research. Missy Cook, co-founder of CTF, along with her 3 boys (Carson, Colby, and Cooper) presented the check at the Butterfly Garden in Children’s Hospital. Dr. Howard Mark Katzenstein,┬áDr. Debra Friedman, and Dr. Richard Ho of Pediatric Hematology-Oncology and Janet Cross, CCLS Director, Patient/Family-Center Care gratefully accepted our check. Our commitment to financially support the severely under-funded area of research for treatment and cures of childhood cancer continues. We will NOT stop fighting for the families whose lives have been, currently are, and will be turned upside down with the words, “YOUR CHILD HAS CANCER.”


Cooper Trooper Advisory Board Meeting

IMG_2853Thank you to the members of CTF Advisory Board, who were able to attend our meeting today. We are so excited about the future of the Cooper Trooper Foundation, as we continue supporting families impacted by childhood cancer. Rod’s absence was definitely felt, yet the level of commitment and enthusiasm of those serving the foundation in this capacity is wonderful. We are gearing up for our 4th annual pumpkin patch….anticipating our BEST year yet. Additionally, we are brainstorming and planning for exciting future events to raise funds and spread awareness about WHO we are and WHAT we do!
