Welcome to Dennis Conner’s CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement.
On Wednesday | December 12th, Dennis Conner was diagnosed with Glioblastoma (aggressive form of brain cancer). After having symptoms of dizziness, headaches, and balance concerns, a MRI was ordered. The tumor is approximately 2 inches in diameter (roughly the size of a tennis ball) located on the right/middle part of his brain. Following the swift action and tenacity of his wife, Terry; Dennis was able to meet with a variety of doctors the following day to determine the best plan of action moving forward. After reviewing all the reports/information/and recommendations, Dennis is having surgery to remove the tumor on Monday | December 17th.
This page will be updated daily throughout the week of his surgery and 2-3 times a week following his return home. We ask that all correspondence online regarding Dennis’ journey be through this site (i.e. no social media presence). Limiting visitors to family only in the hospital until discharged home. Family: please refrain from taking any videos or pictures of Dennis in the hospital, should you visit.
This is a major surgery, and it is critical that Dennis has ample time to recover. We will update this site as soon as he is ready for visitors.
We thank everyone and greatly appreciate your love and prayers. The comments posted on this page will be shared with Dennis throughout his journey.
