We are the teachers of an absolutely amazing little boy who has stole all of our hearts.  Conner is a very special boy that has been in our class for 4 years.  He is silly, funny, loving, and makes us so happy each and every day.  He loves Cisco phones and can tell you the date of any event that has happened over the past few years.   He loves to dance and has an incredible heart.  He blows us away every day with his tremendous strength, determination, and pure love of life.  
       
             Conner was diagnosed with autism when he was only a couple years old.  When Conner was in kindergarten, his family and teachers started noticing that he was having difficulty getting up off of the floor.  They also began noticing other signs that his muscles were not working as efficiently as they should have been.  Soon after, Conner was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a genetic disorder characterized by progressive muscle degeneration and weakness.  

          We have watched as Conner has faced the past few challenging years with determination, strength, and his continued love of life.  He makes us so proud and we love him very much.  

           Conner is extremely lucky to have such an amazing family who loves him and does everthing they can for him.  Right now, however, they need our help.  Conner will be getting his new motorized wheelchair shortly, which is covered by insurance.   Unfortunately the apartment they are living in right now is too small to accommodate Conner's increasing reliance  on the wheelchair.  In addition, they need a minivan with ramp in order to transport Conner.  Neither of these necessities are covered by insurance.  

           Conner truly needs all of our help.  Any help would mean the world to Conner and his family.  It is never easy to ask for help, but we are pleading today.  Please help our little guy.   Thank you all very much.

Hey everyone! I want to say thank you to everyone who supported Conner by purchasing a shirt. The fundraiser was a huge success. We won't know the total profit until we place our shirt order on Monday, but I estimate we made close to $1,000 in proceeds to go toward getting Conner his van! I will put the exact total up when I have it. I also want to thank those amazing people in our community reaching out with information and assistance to help us get closer to our goal. Thank you all so much!

Thank you to everyone! Together we have been making so much progress towards reaching our goal in helping Conner. We will be having a walk-a-thon tomorrow morning at our school to help with our fundraising efforts, and shirts are to come in January. The Daily Journal just featured Conner's story on the front page! We are so excited and grateful for each step closer to getting Conner his handicapped accessible van. Please continue to share Conner's story. Thank you all so much!

I don't know if his parents or family sees these comments, but if someone could pass this information along, he should qualify for the NJ catastrophic illness fund. http://www.state.nj.us/humanservices/cicrf/home/ and the Shirley Eves Center has a support group for families with disabled members. We have some parents that are extremely knowledgeable and supportive of other parents of children with disabilities. http://www.meetup.com/shirleyevescenter/ our next meeting is 6/23 at 7:00
