Valiant child fights rare disease

(Continued)

Connor is getting excellent care at Fletcher Allen, Matt said, but it’s still grueling for everyone.

“It’s a long road over there, back and forth constantly,” he said. “He needs to have a blood-cell count the day before each treatment, but he can have that here, at Inter-Lakes Health in Ticonderoga.”

Despite his illness, Connor is still a happy child, his uncle said.

He’s handling it well,” Matt said. “The doctors are very positive about the outlook, but it’s two years of treatment. 

“He always has a smile. I call him my hero.”
