Our Story


In January of 2010, Conner Holland, the child of our organization’s founders, was diagnosed with T-Cell ALL Leukemia. Conner persevered through the first 9-months of treatment, but at month 14 his cancer relapsed. Chemotherapy drugs that were meant to cure his cancer instead gave him a devastating brain injury that prevented doctors from pursuing any curative therapies. Conner passed away on September 4th, 2011.

The Conner M. Holland Foundation was formed out of this tragedy. We feel that it is unacceptable for families to suffer financial distress while dealing with the crushing weight of pediatric cancer. We provide care, support, and financial assistance to those who need it the most.
