Conner's Super WOD

  • Crossfit Cobalt 411B Lexington Ave West Babylon, NY 11704 (map)

Conner's SUPER W.O.D. is a fundraiser to help  a special little super hero named Conner James and his family with any medical expenses they may have incurred to help Conner get back to full health!!!!

Conner James is 1 years old and is the youngest of 5 children. He is a happy little boy that loves to smile and laugh. Conner had been having fevers on and off again for some time and the doctors had thought it was viral since he had no other symptoms. After weeks of on again off again fevers and becoming very lethargic his parents decided to bypass the pediatrician and go straight to the emergency room. There they took a chest x-ray and it appeared to be Pneumonia and he was admitted to Good Samaritan Hospital. After 6 days on antibiotics and no change in his condition they did a cat scan. The cat scan showed a tumor in his chest with fluid around his heart. He was then transferred to Winthrop Hospital. At Winthrop Hospital he received two Bone Marrow biopsies and nothing came back conclusive. He then underwent a surgical biopsy on the actual tumor. As a result of the biopsy Conner was then diagnosed with a rare form of Acute Myeloid Leukemia called Myeloid Sarcoma. Conner has completed one round of chemotherapy and is currently getting his second round of chemotherapy at this time. He will continue to undergo more chemotherapy and other testing to explore all options until Conner is once again healthy!!

Let's do what this CrossFit community does best and help support this little Super Hero!
