From One of Our Families: Jeremiah Brown

We recently had the pleasure of talking with Jeremiah Brown and his family, who were kind enough to share their experiences with pediatric cancer…

“As a parent, many times we feel we can juggle life and all the things it throws at us.  We handle the scrapes and bruises, and we even manage the broken bones and stomach flus. Yet when life through unfortunate events throws your life into a tailspin of doctor’s tests and hospital beds with that simple word of cancer, you think, ‘How will I be able to handle this?’ You have no choice but to keep moving along, though you feel completely unqualified. Then in the middle of all this, there are those special people that reach into your world and shine hope. The Conner M. Holland Foundation did just this to our family, when we were fighting my son’s leukemia, many offered help but the Holland’s were there to help in real ways.

Today, our son is in remission, and he is currently enrolled in the Pre-PT program at Messiah College. His idea is to one day help kids just like he was fight the effects of cancer treatment. The help the Foundation gave us in rent and fuel oil allowed us to breathe a little bit in times of running between home and the hospital room that Jeremiah spent months in while he underwent a transplant. Today, as Jeremiah continues to undergo treatment for the side effects from his treatment, we know that it was people like you that support this Foundation and others like it that really have stood with us in his battle. Thank you!”
