Supporting Conner's Courage



"Hello...Hello....Is there anybody out there? Is there anyone at all?" 
- Pink Floyd

It is with great sadness and humility we are reaching out in need of your support. Conner Byrne is a 17 year old son, he is our brother, our friend, our neighbor, our senior Grandville classmate, our Pink Floyd lover and a young member of our community. He has recently received devastating news regarding his cancer treatment. Conner has been told that he and the  medical community have done everything they could and there are no more treatment options available to cure his cancer.

We are asking for your support and your help by giving to his "Life Fund" as a way to assist his family in providing the most opportunities to help Conner LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST! Conner was diagnosed with the aggressive Ewing Sarcoma less than a year ago. Conner and his family have spent countless nights, days, weekends, and holidays at Helen DeVos Children's Hospital undergoing radiation and chemotherapy among many other treatments on a weekly basis. Conner has coped with hope, determination, strength, and hearty sarcasm. This is a young man who should be taking his senior pictures - not PET scans, worrying about homework and which college to attend, dreaming about his future and not how to cope with cancer and the end of his life.

Let us help his parents, small business owners who have taken much time off work to support their family and child and let us help Conner fulfill some of his bucket list dreams. Please consider donating to help this family with a generous spirit. Many of you have asked what you can do to help, this is it! As you are sharing time with your family and friends please consider sharing Conners story of hope and courage. Donate in the spirit of love, friendship, gratitude and as a part of Conner's community.  We cannot ease the burden of cancer but we can come together for this family and ease the financial strain they have endured along with a life interrupted by cancer and their tremendous loss. All funds will go directly to support Conner's dreams of the present and wishes of the future.

We ask that you donate not just to Conner, a brilliant kid you may or may not know; but we ask you to please give to a young man trying to live big in a short time, to Ethan his younger brother so that he may share in experiences with him, but also to your family and the blessings you have or to the heartache you have also endured. Participate in our fund in the name of your children and families, donate because we are Grandville and we are a community that comes together in the face of hardship. Conner and his family are our family and our community.
