Cooper is a 5 year old who was diagnosed in March 2011 with PNET (Peripheral Neuroectodermal Tumor) which is a form of Ewing's Sarcoma and is very rare in young children.  He received chemotherapy from March 2011 until December 2011.   Cooper was constantly in the hospital last year whether for a week of chemo or for a recovery stay at the local hospital.  He will have scans and tests every 3 months for 3 years and then every 6 months for 2 years after that to make sure the cancer hasn't returned.  He is approaching his first 3 month mark and will go for scans on April 20, 2012.   To read more about Cooper you can go to his blog site: Cooperscourage.blogspot.com
