What is the Super Cooper Little Red Wagon Foundation? 

Super Cooper’s Little Red Wagon Foundation grew out of Elise and Justin Herman’s experience as their son, Cooper, was treated for brain and spinal cancer. They saw parents sleeping in chairs in hospital rooms or struggling with hotel and food bills while trying to focus on their family’s needs. As they traversed the country seeking treatment for Cooper, racking up huge hotel and travel expenses along the way, they knew other families must be struggling even more than they. So, even amid the strain of caring for Cooper, the family started the foundation to help others.

Our hero and inspiration, Super Cooper!

Cooper lost his battle on January 19, 2014, but his life continues to inspire us. Our memory will always be of  his infectious laugh, love of music, desire to play even through the pain and fatigue and the courage that came shining through as he asked his healthcare providers before a procedure, “How are you today?” His smiles and hugs he gave in the face of so many obstacles will be forever in our hearts. Cooper’s memory lives on through Super Cooper’s Little Red Wagon Foundation.
