My Story

Connor R., the youngest of four children, is an active 11 year old boy who is currently in the 5th grade. He excels in spelling and enjoys science but his favorite subjects are P.E. and recess! He is a budding young athlete who participates in travel soccer and basketball almost year around and always gives 100% whether it be on the soccer field or the basketball court. When he is not busy with school or his athletic endeavors, Connor can be found outside playing or hanging out with his friends. His favorite activities inside include playing XBox and watching movies. He loves to eat and one of his favorite foods is salmon. In the summer of 2011, he traveled with his family to Hawaii where he loved playing in the ocean and visiting Pearl Harbor. Despite being diagnosed with ALL in April of 2010, Connor always has a smile on his face and never lets his leukemia or the ongoing treatment keep him from experiencing life to the fullest!
