Whitney was a teenager who went through treatment with Connor. She was a bright light. Our hearts ached when she passed. Her best friend Brittany volunteered with us at the very beginning of Connor's Heroes. She hasn't stopped! Brittany decorated BMT rooms and held backpack drives. In college, she started a backpack program for us in Roanoke. Now a teacher, she organized her elementary school to make and donate nearly 100 fleece blankets over the past couple years. Brittany's giving heart is transformative. When we started as a nonprofit, donations from the Deep Run Marathon Dance got us off the ground. We are grateful to Brittany, Kathleen and the DRMD community for believing in the power of helping local nonprofits in the area.
