Students at Cloverdale Elementary School are making bright and colorful cards for Cooper Sasser who will soon celebrate his fourth birthday, a milestone which will also mark the halfway point of Cooper's chemotherapy treatments.
The students and teachers don't know
Cooper personally, but they all too well how serious cancer is and how
encouragement can lift the spirits of those who suffer from it.
"We've had several people touched by cancer recently," said Cloverdale media specialist Carla Tew. "We had a student whose mother passed away from cancer (recently) and we've done several things to get our kids involved trying to making a difference in other people's lives."
The young Cloverdale students already have nearly 200 cards full of birthday greetings and want you to help them in making Cooper's birthday bright.
You can drop off a card at Cloverdale Elementary before November 9th or you can mail one to Cooper at P.O. Box 866 Andalusia, Alabama 36420.
