We want to send congratulations to Connor Goodwin, our namesake. Connor graduated from the Maggie L. Walker Governor’s School in June and on July 2, he will report to the United States Naval Academy. For the past 14 years, Connor has served as an inspiration for other kids who were diagnosed with cancer. Not only is he a survivor, he is an awesome friend for many of our childhood cancer heroes along the way. When Connor’s parents named the organization, “Connor’s Heroes,” it was an acknowledgement of all the people who supported their family when Connor battled leukemia as a preschooler. The name also signified their determination to continue building a community of heroes to provide hope, guidance, and support to other childhood cancer families.

Around here, we think Connor was our organization’s first HERO.

We are so proud of him and can’t wait to see the incredible impact he will have on this world.
