Cooper’s Dream: A once in a lifetime vacation to Orlando, FL to visit Give Kids the World.
Cooper Stansbury, age 4, was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma in Nov 2019. He had resection surgery to remove the original mass, conquered 5 rounds of chemotherapy, 2 stem cell transplants, 14 days of proton therapy, and is now undergoing 6 rounds of immunotherapy.
Cooper’s scans are clear — praise! — but he will complete treatment to reduce the risk of relapse.
He is your typical four-year-old that loves baseball, water skiing, going on adventures, and being the best big brother to twins — Colt and Sophia!
A trip to Give Kids the World would be such a breath of fresh air for Cooper. After many long hospital stays, hard treatments, and missing out on school, birthdays, and other events, a trip like this will give Cooper the chance to really be a kid!!
Cooper has been such an inspiration to family, friends, and the Knoxville community. His resilience and determination is unmatched. We are so proud of him!
