My Story

This is Mikey Conger in October of 2004 at age 5 wearing his favorite colors, LSU purple and gold. One of Mikey's first loves is following the Tigers, and at age 5, as you can see, he was already determined to stick it right on the numbers of those LSU receivers! Less than a year later, in July of 2005, Mikey was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) and since that time that same determination you see here has served him well as he continues to make progress in his recovery. Mikey has recently returned home (late January) to the Baton Rouge, LA area after doctors at St. Jude's in Memphis gave the discharge approval his mother had been praying for. Mikey has another favorite pastime and, although he still has alot ahead of him, evidence of his recovery progress is given by his return to cartoon drawing. He has always loved "doodling", as his mother calls it, but since December of this past year his hands would not cooperate...that is until this past week! Today a full page, story telling, cartoon is under a magnet on the Conger household refrigerator. Please read more about "Mikey", whom I am pleased to honor at this year's St. Baldrick's "Shave the Way to Conquer Kid's Cancer" event sponsored by J.T. McQ's, by visiting his website.
