Connor Aaron is a 10 year old boy fighting Cystic Fibrosis. Connor was initially diagnosed when he was just 2 months old. Since then, his family has continued to strive to bring joy, happiness and quality to Connor’s life because each and every day he is innocently fighting a battle he can never win. This amazing fourth grader loves sports, especially basketball and football. This past school year, Connor made the cross country, track and basketball teams at Jonathan Jennings Elementary School where he is a student. He even played for a travel basketball team. Connor is stringently monitored, and due to some limitations tends to miss practices and games at times. However, because he absolutely loves athletics, his family supports his wishes 100 percent of the time and will never discourage him from anything—despite the physical difficulties that he will certainly endure.
