Baby needs more help

Baby needs more help

A “3 Miracles for Belle” benefit for 2-year-old Belle Cooper, who almost drowned in a children’s pool last summer and has been severely disabled since then, raised $2,700 Aug. 2 at Green Acres Mini-Golf in Midland, but more money is needed to ensure that the baby gets all the help she needs and one day is able to walk and talk.

Seeking a third miracle for Belle comes after she was born prematurely and needed heart surgery, said her great-grandmother, Janette Lewis of Odessa, whose church, the West University Church of Christ, supported the benefit.

Contact Belle’s grandfather Donn Hamilton at (432) 770-1979 or 3miracles4belle@gmail.com. Lewis may be reached at (432) 296-2715.
