Support Cooper's Cause Foundation

Why Help?

When Cooper was born with multiple heart defects that demanded countless open heart surgeries, his family faced an immense amount of medical expenses during the most difficult time in their lives. Many of the family's friends stepped forward to organize various fundraising events to help the family manage the financial burden of their unexpected journey. Graciously, Cooper's family could not help but "pay it forward" and begin setting up a trust fund that would help other families in similar situations. Everyone involved in Cooper's Cause Foundation has a passion for helping and their time is donated to this cause. The foundation operates with little expenses.

When you support Cooper's Cause Foundation, you are helping families that have health insurance but do not qualify for many of the programs designed to aid in the unexpected and substantial financial burden related to pediatric heart conditions even after the insurance payments. You will be supporting the average American family who desperately needs a hand up in ensuring their little fighters receive the medical care they so desperately deserve.

Social Security Disability Benefit Program

One of the most distressing pieces of news a parent can receive is that their child has a congenital heart defect. Congenital heart defects are present at birth and include any abnormalities within the walls, valves, or blood vessels within the heart. They can range from minor defects with no symptoms to complex, life-threatening defects.

If your child has a congenital heart defect and you are suffering financially, he or she may qualify for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. The following PDF will give you a general overview of the SSD program and will provide you with the information needed to begin the application process. Social Security Disability (SSD) info (in PDF format).
