Who is Connor and why do I run for him?
During treatment photo.
Connor is my cousin’s son. He has Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). He is only 4 years old. He is over a year into his treatment now. His prognosis is good but he still has to undergo 2 more years of treatment. More hospitals, more needles, more spinal taps.
His grandma, Betty Jo, also died of ALL 9 years ago. I can’t even imagine what went through my cousins’ minds when they found out Connor had the same thing.
So I run for Connor. And I run for his grandma. Because it’s one small thing I can do.
Here is a link to a recent story of him getting a great surprise! It’s awesome!
