My arms are empty and acheing...

I can’t believe I’m a mother without…

Life has been twisted and turned upside down. As a mother, I had both the wonderful privilege of holding my sweet son as I brought him into this world…and the horrible chore of holding him as he took his last breaths and left this world, at only 7 years old. June 24, 2010 he earned his angel wings, passing away after an inspiring but brief fight against Cystic Fibrosis. Now I live, solely focusing on living a life to get to be with him again in heaven, and to raise awareness for Cystic Fibrosis research. I am dedicated to a cure, not only for my sweet sons legacy but so that other CF families never experience the greatest loss of their lives that we are now facing. My mother’s arms are missing Connerman, yet he still inspires me daily to leave a mark of LOVE on this world…so for you my sweet prince, mommy will try!

It's that time of the year again, January is almost to a close and my mind has shifted gears to my favorite season.....Great Strides walk for Cystic Fibrosis season!!! Our walks take place across the nation in the month of May (and a few in early June). Over the 5 years that we've participated in this walk, we've raised well over $10,000 for CF research and drug developement, but this year I have bigger ambitions.
This year my goal for our walk team is to raise AT LEAST $4000 for CF research, and also to have Conner Jones Teams branch out across this nation! Already we have teams started in WA, CA and NY!!! Each individual team will have their individual and team goals. We are reaching for the stars this year!
Please consider donating to our local walk, which is in Vancouver, WA May 8th this year. Please also consider joining our walk team here locally, and if you're far away please consider starting a Conner Jones team where YOU LIVE! It is so easy to do! I am here to help all of you along the way!
Lets make this the BEST year for Conner Jones Team EVER!

  1. Hello Sarah,
    I have been following your blog for the last 9 months or so and have been deeply impacted by Conner's story. My heart goes out to you and your family, and all of those affected by CF. I wanted you to know, that because of your blog, I was inspired to start volunteering at the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation here in Seattle and am participating in the Great Strides walk here on 5/22/11. Words could never express just how much Conner's story has impacted me to try to make a difference so no child has to go thru what he did, again. May he rest in peace. God bless you, I hope our paths will cross one day.

Did You Know....

There are over 100,000 people, the size of a small city, on the transplant list in the US.

There were less than 10,000 deceased organ donors in the US last year. (that's a ratio of 1 organ donor to every 10 transplant patients).

In the time it takes you to shower today, 1 new name is added to the US transplant waiting list.

From the time you woke up this morning to the time you wake up tomorrow morning, 18 people will die waiting for their transplant in the US.
