"I have passed this bell and this wall once sometimes twice a week for 295 days, dreaming about the day when Conor would ring it like crazy, signaling the end of cancer and treatments. Unfortunately that day will never come for our baby. For almost a year Conor has been brave and strong and kept fighting but this time the cancer has won. He relapsed again and we were told that this is the end.

It is now Conor's time to stop fighting and being brave. No more medicine, no more clinic, no more hospital, no more poking. It is time for him to rest and snuggle at home where he can see his family and play with friends until it's time for him to go.

Thank you to everyone who has been there for Conor and our family over the last 9 months. You lifted us up and made us stronger. Without you everything would have been much heavier and harder.

Fuck cancer."

- Jenny Lynn Kehoe (Conor's mom)

Hello everyone!

My name is Santiago Palacios. I'm a junior at St. John's College High School along with fellow team members Michael Kehoe, Sophie Mattheus, Leah Morrison, and Breana Alcantara. I enjoy rugby, video games, and hanging out with friends. After being nominated by Mike for this campaign and learning about Conor's heartbreaking story, I knew I had to join the fight.

 


 

Conor Dennis Kehoe passed away from T cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia on October 3,2021 after a ten month battle. He was not yet 3 years old.Conor was a happy,smart active little boy who loved trucks, ham and cheese croissants, dinosaurs, construction sites and animals.

 

 

Conor Kehoe was full of life and ready to explore the world. Leukemia took this opportunity from him, and now I’m fighting for Conor and a Cure.


Many LLS-supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients but are also now used to treat patients with rare forms of stomach and skin cancers and are in clinical trials for patients with lung, brain, breast, pancreatic and prostate cancers. And LLS-funded drugs like targeted therapies and immunotherapies are now saving thousands of lives every day.
 
We really are getting close to our goal of a world without blood cancers! -But there is still work to do.
 

All donations are greatly appreciated and tax-deductible. They'll not only support LLS research, but patient services, advocacy, public and professional education, and community services as well.

Our team goal is $50,000 and we can't do it without your generosity.

Please visit my website often and tell friends who would also like to donate!
 
On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you for your support! For more information about LLS, please visit www.lls.org

Your donation means the world to our team, Conor, and his family.

For a Cure,

    May the measure of young Connor's life not be it's duration but the endurance of his memory.
