Ahead of next week’s massive all-star game for Cooper, Jodie & Soda caught up with Coop’s dad Matt to hear how he and the family are feeling.

Matt said that the game has given Coop a bit of a “boot up the backside” to get him back practising shooting and moving around again.

But it was his prediction about the big game and its effect on the family that was most touching.

“It’s going to be totally amazing and it’s going to be a memory we all cherish forver,” Matt told Jodie and Soda.
