Cooper Trooper Foundation (CTF) is a 501(c)3, non-profit whose mission is to champion the fight against childhood cancer through sibling support and research funding. For thirteen years, an annual pumpkin patch has been our primary fundraiser. Siblings are supported through our Courage Kids, which are family/sibling support kids with items just for the siblings of children with cancer. The book included in the Courage Kit can also assist parents in helping their child deal with common emotions that arise when a sibling is diagnosed with cancer. In addition, CTF has contributed over $420,000 to a pediatric cancer research endowment at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt. In 2022, CTF launched a competitive student volunteer internship to allow high school students in the Middle Tennessee area an opportunity to become involved with our non-profit fundraiser.
