Cooper Ross was diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy in the fall of '16 at a mere 2 months old. A disease for which there is no cure, however, recent advancements have allowed for people with SMA to receive treatments that will improve life expectancy. Cooper and his family reside in Black River Falls and must travel for treatments in both Madison and Chicago, as you would expect, this is taking a toll on Cooper's family, so friends of Cooper's family have put together a benefit to help ease some of the financial burden.

Gabrielle Servant has been diagnosed with a very rare spinal cord cancer. Gabby has 6 spinal cord tumors called Disseminated Spinal Myxopapillary Ependymomas. Approximately 1 in 500,000 are diagnosed with this type of cancer yearly. In December of 2016, in an attempt to remove part of the largest tumor, Gabby underwent spinal surgery. The neurosurgeon could not remove all of the largest tumor without leaving Gabby with a lifetime of deficits, such as paralysis. Gabby has started Proton radiation. She will undergo 5 radiation treatments a week for 6 weeks, a total of 30 treatments.
Gabby has been doctoring at Mayo in Rochester, Minnesota. The countless MRI’s, surgery, numerous doctors, radiation, etc., are all adding up. In an effort to have a cancer benefit to help Gabby out during this difficult time in her life, Gladiators for Gabby was organized.
