Connor Cruse was a normal four-year-old boy who loved playing with his toys and being with his family. But then he got really sick and doctors found cancer in his body. Connor fought cancer while he went to school, played with his friends and spent time with his siblings. After a lot of surgeries and treatments, Connor was still able to smile. His biggest wish was that no other kid would have cancer or have to go through what he went through.
Connor passed away when he was eight-years-old. His parents started TeamConnor Childhood Cancer Foundation so that a cure for childhood cancer could be found and no other child would get it.
