DENVER — Cooper Daniels is like any other three-year-old boy. He loves to roughhouse with his brother and sister.
His mom Lisa says these are moments to cherish, because Cooper is battling cancer.
“To be cancer free is the biggest wish for all of us,” Lisa Daniels told us.
Cancer first attacked Cooper’s kidneys, so one was removed. Cooper’s cancer is now in remission.
Lisa says it’s been very tough.
“You don’t see what’s coming when you get into (the treatment), and obviously you’re going to do whatever it takes.”
This week, Cooper and others will receive some help thanks to the Mile High Fresh Berry frozen yogurt shop. The shop will be accepting donations to help the Make A Wish Foundation and will match the first $1,000.
“I’m fortunate to be able to open this business and I think that if you’re in that position you should be willing to help others,” says co-owner Kevin Favreau.
Lisa says receiving such support for her child and others in a similar situation is something any mother would cherish.
“It’s so hard to see your child during a hospital stay and having surgery,” Lisa laments. “My ultimate wish for him is that he has the longest, fullest life he could ever imagine.”
Lisa also encourages the community to keep in mind that there are many other kids who need a helping hand.
If you would like to make a donation that benefits the Make A Wish Foundation you can visit Mile High Fresh Berry Yogurt this week downtown on Curtis Street just east of the 16th Street Mall.
