A Story of Hope: Conner McDougall

This is a website of one of my roommates, Conner. A quiet kid, but he responds with a smile to the world around him. His story is sad, but also one of hope. You can read his full story on his website:

In a car accident, tragically killing both his father and 6 year old brother, Conner survived to fight on. C1-C4 vertebrae were stretched but not broken, leaving him with impaired sensory and motor activity. Though his outlook initially was very bleak, Conner now is moving all his extremities and is currently weaning off the ventilator. A story of survival, Conner inspires mean what can be possible with persistence, hope, and the prayers and support of those around you.
