The funds we raised this year are allowing kids the opportunity to look at their moments of frustration, devastation, and tragedy as just that, a moment, not a lifetime. We have raised funds to make sure that the life of Shriner patients will be a life of hope, determination and opportunity. The funds we raised are allowing for treatment, research, and opportunities for kids in need! The kids will be able to turn what would only be predictions of their future based on medical needs to a feeling of empowerment that they will achieve more than any of us know to dream.
Our fundraising has created opportunities for a brighter future. Connor is one of many who has been transformed…through 11 years of support and treatment from Shriners Hospitals for Children-Chicago. Connor was a boy who had to learn how to eat from a syringe, unable to make sounds – to a young man with a smile that lights up the room, a heart that heals any person’s sadness and spirit that motivates everyone! Shriners Hospitals offer more than the BEST medical treatment but also the compassion, choices, and opportunities to to develop relationships and once in a lifetime opportunities for those kids. Below are two of the opportunities that Connor has been given in 2018.
1.) JOHN DEERE CLASSIC in Moline,IL: Connor will spend the weekend meeting golfers and caddies and sharing his story to the community in the Quad Cities about all the help Shriners Hospitals Chicago has offered him and give hope to local families in need of treatments for their child.
2.)SHRINERS OPEN in LAS VEGAS! Connor has been invited to attend this event as a “Standard Bearer” or patient ambassador representing the Chicago hospital. He will be spend five days with the PGA golfers walking the course with groups during the day and attending banquet dinners at night telling his success stories from Shriners Hospitals! Please take the time to go the PGA’s website for the Las Vegas Shriners Open page and look for Connor’s story!
