My Story

So I guess the most frequently asked question is how did we know?? So I will take time to tell our story on how it all started. We had noticed that Connor may had been getting a hernia (which is very normal in young boys) so we made an appointment with his pediatrician and she found that we were correct about the hernia but we needed to see what was causing the hernia, so in her normal check up she noticed that his liver and spleen were enlarged and felt that we needed to take him to Ai for an ultra sound and closer look. Well what happened next has changed our lives forever. We were diagnosed with stage 3 liver cancer. CANCER its a word that has seemed so evil to us these last few days, a word that we have been afraid to say, a word that we couldn't say, a word that literally took our breath away. Cancer was the word that stopped our family's whole world in one simple second. As evil as this word has been and is, We are now realizing we must come to terms to help our son Fight his battle against Hepatoblastoma (cancer) Please feel free to follow along on Connors journey to beat cancer. Between us parents and grandparents we will try to keep this site updated as frequently as possible and let our Family and closest friends help Connor fight as well. We will share messages with connor if you would like to leave him one and we will keep you updated with his status as frequently as possible. Thank you
