Cooper Matthew Richards was called to heaven in January of 2017. He was three years old. Throughout his life his courage and sweetness inspired many to try to follow his example and live a life of love.
That love lives on in the Coop's Troop Foundation. Its mission statement is Caring for Courageous Children. Already the Foundation has founded lending libraries at Boston Children's Hospital, and donated quality of life items such as ramps, seats, and at-home medical equipment to families caring for children with life-limiting diseases. Coop's Troop also is an advocate for research into GM-1 and other rare disorders.
Please visit coopstroop.org to learn more about the Foundation.
And be on the look out for an announcement for the 3rd Annual Coop's Troop 5K in Bare Cove Park in July. And the 2nd Annual Coop's Troop Toy Drive on December 9th. facebook.com/Coops-Troop-5K.
Let us all strive to remember our blessings and do "Cooper Work". God bless Cooper Matthew Richards and the Richards Family.
