Buy a Pumpkin for a Purpose at The Cooper Trooper Foundation Patch

You may have passed it a hundred times.  The pumpkin patch at the corner of Cool Springs Blvd and Mallory Lane has more than 16,000 pumpkins for sale.  But, the family that owns the Cooper Trooper Pumpkin Patch isn’t there to make money.   They are there to *raise* money to help families dealing with cancer.  Missy Cook of Franklin knows what it’s like to have cancer in the family.  Her youngest son Cooper was diagnosed at a young age with the deadly disease, but there’s a reason Cooper is called a “trooper”.  Reporter Nick Paranjape and Videographer David Jean take you to this special pumpkin patch and have the story of how one family is in the business of giving back.
