Thanks for supporting the 11th annual Cooper Open golf tournament to benefit the Cooper Family. Deb Cooper and her three daughters, Monica, Julia and Rebecca are all suffering from mitochondrial disease - a chronic, debilitating disease for which there is no cure. Mitochondria are responsible for creating more than 90% of the energy needed by the body to sustain life and support growth. When they fail, whole systems begin to fail and the lives of the affected people are severely compromised. This event raises money for the family that is critical for their daily living. Money from this event helps put food on their table and heat in their home. With state and federal funds being cut, they have little support. Deb is getting sicker and has spent many days in the hospital this year. All four of them are doing their best to stay positive, but they are broke and sick and need our love, help and support more than ever. If you can golf, make a donation, buy or donate auction items, or sponsor a hole, please do. Know that all of the money raised goes directly to Debbie and the girls to help with their most basic needs. If you have ever considered helping, now is the time. Thanks in advance for your generosity. If you can’t help financially, please keep their family in your thoughts and prayers.
