Earlier this year, I was contacted by the Make-A-Wish Foundation because they had a teenager who wanted to meet me. When he was just 15 years old, Tim Conners was stricken with leukemia. He underwent three months of radiation, chemotherapy treatments, and spinal taps but they were ineffective at stopping the disease. Finally, a bone marrow transfer from his older brother, Mike, saved Tim's life. But there were many complications, one of which caused him to go blind.
