A Room for Kareem

Connor's Heroes is one of a few nonprofits who are allowed on the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit to serve the patients on the floor. The unit is not a pediatric ward. Our kids are sharing the halls with adults. When a child is admitted to BMT, the staff know immediately who to call. It's Connor's Heroes. This includes cancer patients and children diagnosed with other blood disorders such as sickle cell anemia. Kareem is one such patient. He is 13 years old. When he entered his room on the unit, he didn't expected all the decorations and gifts. Thank you to Ellen Purcell and Hannah Brown for spending an afternoon preparing his room. Thank you for letting Connor's Heroes be there for all the young patients on the BMT unit.
