Kooper was diagnosed with Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy in 2012 just 2 weeks after his brother, Case, was diagnosed. HCM is a genetic disease causing the walls of the heart to abnormally thicken. As with many heart conditions, pulling all competitive sports and activities is the first thing they did. Kooper was diagnosed the same week he was going to start his 7th grade year off as quarterback of his football team. This was a huge adjustment for a fit, active, athletic kid! It has been 6 years since his diagnosis and Kooper has found many things he loves and enjoys. He is an avid hunter and is learning guitar. He is now a freshman bible/missions major at Abilene Christian University and plans to minister to youth and family. His time at the Hunt With Heart camp last spring gave him a chance to spend quality time with other kids with the same health challenges as him. Harvesting a big Corsicana Ram topped off a great weekend! This fall, he was able to be junior counselor for HWH and was blessed to get a huge, beautiful Eland. What a memory and experience he will never forget! Thanks to HWH! We are proud to be part of the HWH family!
