Online boutique hosting bracelet fundraiser for Super Cooper

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. - An online women's clothing store based in Hillcrest is lending its support to the family of Cooper Busch.

Faith and Wonder Boutique is selling bracelets as a fundraiser for the young Chenango Bridge boy dubbed Super Cooper.

Cooper has Down Syndrome and was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia in November 2016.

Faith and Wonder features women's casual clothing and accessories.

Owner Courtney Williams is selling hand-made essential oil diffuser bracelets with a portion of the proceeds benefiting Cooper.

"I don't know them personally.  If I see them, I know them, obviously, they're on TV. But oh my gosh, I have three kids and I can't imagine.  It's tough and we want to show our support," said Williams.

Williams set a goal of selling 100 when she launched the campaign a little over a week ago, and has already sold 86.

The fundraiser ends this Saturday.

The bracelets cost $24.99 with $5 going to Cooper's family.

Then both Animal Adventure and Garage Taco Bar have agreed to match the $5 bringing the total for each bracelet sold to $15.

To purchase, go to FaithWonderBoutique.com.

The Red Cross is also holding a blood drive in honor of Super Cooper this Thursday.

It will take place from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the American Legion Post 1194 at 363 West Service Road in Hillcrest.
