The family had set up a GoFundMe account which has raised more than $1.4 million to date. The call for donations is as follows:
“Keely Roberts and her 8-year-old son Cooper were deeply saddened by the tragic events of last Monday. Both were shot while taking part in the July 4th parade in Highland Park. Cooper’s spinal cord was severed. After many surgeries, “he was put into serious condition. However, doctors have determined that he will be paralyzed from the waist down. He was unconscious and unconscious but needs continuous sedation due to the intense pain,” Cooper continues fight as hard as he can. We know their medical bills will be significant, as will the treatments, therapies, and all of the appliances, gadgets, and adjustments to their home. Please continue to keep the Roberts family in your thoughts and prayers. Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated.”
