I am a friend of Mallory Cooper's family and I thought it would be good to share her story here.

written in Mallory Cooper words

I imagine every parent that is expecting always thinks about the same questions. Will my baby have my eyes? Will they have their father's hair color? What will they look like? I imagine though, that they never think will my baby have Hirschsprung's Disease? I know my parents didn't think about that, but when I was born my family's life was changed forever.
My name is Mallory Cooper, and I was born with Hirschsprung's Disease. It is a condition caused by a lack of nerve endings in the intestinal system. Some cases are worse than others and I had a severe case. My entire colon and part of my small bowel were affected. I have had more than 17 major surgeries which included central lines, feeding tubes, removal of my large intestine and part of my small, a colostomy, an iliostomy, and the list goes on. I was in and out of Children's Mercy for the first five years of my life and my mom and I lived there more the first two years, than we did at home.
Childrens Mercy Hospital
From the time I was born until now, my life has been so much easier because of all the help from the doctors, nurses and surgeons at Children's Mercy Hospital. The doctors and staff helped my family however they could. They became my second family. My mom told me about one Christmas when I didn't have to be in the hospital and one of my surgeons called at home to see how I was feeling. They really do care! A lot of people say that I am a miracle child. There were other groups besides the doctors and nurses who made my stay at the hospital good. There is a group of people who do all that they can to provide money, toys, wagons, supplies and whatever they can to make the hospital more enjoyable.
childrens miracle network
Children's Miracle Network is that group. Since I was young, they have helped me and hundreds of other local children. I would do anything to help Children's Miracle Network because I see the importance of this group and all those who contribute money to help those who need it. Thank you Children's Miracle Network for being there for me and all of the other children you help in Kansas City!
