My Story

Follow Connor’s story or make donations at Connorsfund.org Thank You for all your love, support and prayers! Love, Connor -Looking for Hope On Friday, August 13th, Connor was placed under anesthesia while his eyes were scoped, searched, and evaluated by a retina specialist. Then, almost out of nowhere, came the words no parents want to hear: "Your son has cancer." Specifically, Retinoblastoma. A cancerous tumor was found in his left eye. Because of the type and progression of Connor’s cancer, it was determined the only course of treatment for him is intra arterial chemotherapy(IAC). This relatively new procedure is currently only being administered in PA and NY, so Connor must be flown to PA once a month for treatment. So much hope comes from knowing you have taken your baby to the best there is, until treatment for Connor began to be denied due to lack of insurance and non-existent personal resources. As a family of strong Christian faith, Crissy and John have been relying on their faith along with the love and prayers of friends and family to get through such a devastating time. Anyone who has been fortunate enough to have spent time with the Thomas family knows what a wonderful, caring and loving people they are. Even during this hard economic time, John and Crissy are always willing to do and give to others. There is an old African proverb that says "It takes a village to raise a child" and it will take a village to help Connor. This family cannot provide care to little Connor without your help. All donated funds will enable Connor to continue to get the care that he needs.
