Connor's Medical Fund

Just wanted to update you all on what has been going on with Connor Collins since the end of the soccer season. Many of you were aware he was going to be having surgery to put a bar (Nuss-bar) in his chest to help with it caving inward - that surgery was the beginning of July - all went well, he was healing well, and all looked good. Connor had a few visits to the ER in the next month or so which they thought was just his reacting to coming off of the pain meds he had been on and his starting to feel everything - However, beginning to mid-August Connor ended up at the University of Iowa's ER and they determined the Nuss-bar had created overwhelming infection and they would need to do surgery again to remove the bar. The infection affected many organs, caused strokes, and attached to his heart valve - This coming Wednesday Connor will be having open-heart surgery.

Just wanted to share with you all so you can keep him and his family in your prayers as this has been a very trying time for them all and Connor has spent quite a deal of time in the hospital already.
