Th family of Dorothy Cooper are uniting to raise money on her behalf.

In 2004, Dorothy was diagnosed with high blood pressure or hypertension. The latter puts her at risk for stroke and heart attack. She has also has the eye disease keratoconus. Therefore, she has undergone various treatments including various medications. She has never been an alcoholic or smoker. However, the high blood pressure may return to high levels once the medication is stopped. Currently, the family is working to raise as much money as possible as Dorothy has no health insurance to speak of at this time.

Dorothy Cooper was born on December 18, 1953 in Memphis Tennessee where she grew up. She attended high school earning consistently high grades. Later on, she received a partial scholarship to attend Eastern Michigan University where she graduated with a B.A. in in business management and a minor in marketing.

In 1982, Dorothy accepted a job at a K-Mart in Muskegon MI. She wanted to get a position as a manager of a store within 5 years. Unfortunately she new made it any higher than an assistant store manager. Dorothy searched frantically for other jobs where she may have more upward mobility but nothing materialized. Therefore, she remained employed with K-Mart until she was laid off in 2008. Since then she has had great difficulty paying her medical bills.
