Cooper Roberts, 8-Year-Old Paralyzed in Highland Park Shooting, Keeps Going, Mother Says

In a Monday update, Cooper Roberts‘ mother said “growth and rehabilitation physically and emotionally are gradual and challenging.”

“Even on days when he is exhausted, worried, feels pain, or when, as an eight-year-old little boy, his conviction in the benefits of physical therapy is eroding, he pushes through,” Cooper’s mother, Keely Roberts, wrote.

Sports-Minded Temperament

Despite not knowing what winning means, he wants to win. He wants to run and play with his siblings and friends again.

Keely said that Cooper’s brother Luke’s challenges “may not be as physically obvious but are deep, terrible, and true.” Luke, Cooper’s twin, saw the parade shooting.

“Physical and mental rehabilitation are gradual and painful,” the boys’ mother said. “This town, which has been so devastated, has supported our family and the boys in unbelievable ways.

They Saved Lives

Our religious community, boys’ school, Highland Park neighbourhood, and North Shore are our family, and we love you.

“What that little dog has meant emotionally to Cooper and Luke and what he has helped them through is simply incomprehensible,” their mother said.

“This puppy and those lads have a beautiful relationship.” “As a mother, I will always be thankful to George for everything he has done for our family, particularly for these two small boys who needed his unconditional love more than ever.”

Keely said her family is inspired by caregivers for people with special needs.
