My Story

Conner turned 2 and a few days later he was diagnosed with ALL. His life as a normal toddler was replaced with chemotherapy, medicines, spinal taps, and the side effects of it all. However, never did it change his outlook. He pressed on and went about his life as if it were normal. He is the strongest person any of us know and I am honored to call him my son. ALL may have taken his hair and his toddler years, but it did not take his spirit. He still loves his NINTENDO 3D-DS, playing with his big brother and watching his favorite television shows. He is in maintenance/remission right now, but every day there is still that thought in the back of all of our heads, What if?? No matter what, he is the light of our lives and he brings smiles to all that meet him. He is our "TRUE WARRIOR" and will forever be the STRONGEST person we have ever known.
