Connor was born May 31, 2007 at 11:15 am via c-section at 23 weeks 5 days gestation. He weighed in at 618 grams (1 pound, 5.5 ounces) and 11.5 inches long. On Day #2, Connor experienced two Grade III Intracranial Hemorrhages and one Grade IV Intracranial Hemorrhage. He was not expected to survive the weekend.
But, Connor proved otherwise and survived. We spent 133 days in the NICU experiencing the roller coaster of emotions and events that come natural to having an unpredictable micro-preemie. Through it all we did what we could to just be his parents and participate in as much of his cares as we were allowed.
Transitioning into the Essential Early Education (EEE) program was a difficult decision because Connor was so small. He had a Kid Kart for mobility which was able to break down for easy travel in our van. Of course Connor did not stay small. He has made miraculous progress in his growth and as a Kindergartener has transitioned into a big boy wheelchair.
We begin a new journey to raise money to purchase a used van that is handicap accessible. One that will allow Connor to stay in his wheelchair for transporting. At this point I am able to lift Connor into a special carseat, but as he grows this process is becoming more difficult. For safety reasons for both him and I, we need an accessible van.
My name is Victoria and I have a six year old son Connor who has Spastic Quadriplegia Cerebral Palsy. We are in desperate need to raise money to fund the purchase of a wheelchair accessible van. Due to limited financial resources, we are unable to do this on our own and our current vehicle is in severe distress potentially leaving us with no mode of transportation in the near future.
