Connor and his family
On November 9th, 2011 our lives changed forever when our sweet Connor was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, at the young age of six. His cancer journey has not been an easy one. He was put on High Risk protocol after his cancer cells were more persistent than expected. He has had many hospitalizations for chemotherapy as well asillnesses.

We spent Valentine’s Day, Easter, Mothers Day and Connor’s 7th Birthday all inpatient at Primary Children's. He has had to endure all the horrible side effects of chemotherapy, which at times seemed like more than his little body would be able to handle.
Connor is a fighter and has had to grow up way to fast. His view of the world is astonishing, it takes your breath away. He is known for his beautiful eyes, smile and intelligence. He has over two more years of chemotherapy left but has come so far in the last year. He has endured things children should never have to, and he always does it with positive attitude. We love him so much and are very proud of him. We raise awareness because NO child deserves to lose their childhood, or most of all their life to CANCER!
Let's join together in bringing some smiles to this beautiful boy & his family.
-P.S. We Adore you. XOXO
