Here are just some of the ways Conner’s Cause helps families in need:

• Purchased an IPad with text to speech application so that 13-year old Jerry, who lost his ability to speak after a brain injury, could go back to school.

• Repaired the family car of 15- year old Xavier so his single mother could drive him to Los Angeles to meet with his kidney transplant team.

• Payed for bus passes each month so that the single mother of baby Jared, born prematurely, can visit him and participate in providing the care he needs to go home.

• Covered the costs of co-payments and other out of pocket medical costs for 8-year old Omar’s family while he is undergoing chemotherapy.
