Kooper's symptoms started when he was just four years old, and he couldn't use the right side of his body. After a brain tumor and ADEM diagnosis, he was finally diagnosed with MS at age 7. He is currently 11 and a ball of energy! His most challenging symptom is heat exhaustion. The Texas heat drains him quickly, and sometimes causes leg pain. At one point, he lost much of his vision, but luckily his vision has now returned.
Kooper loves playing soccer, and he is really good at it! His speed on the field is amazing. He falls a lot when it's really hot (heat exhaustion), but he gets right back up.
Keep playing, Kooper!
Kooper’s monkey’s name is: Collin
