At the young age of 15, Tim Conners was diagnosed with cancer and ultimately lost his sight. Tim has chosen to use this life changing experience to gain a positive perspective and says it has “opened up his eyes to everything that was in front of him.” Although he still faces complications today, he continues to persevere through them, and work toward his mission of living life to the fullest, making a difference, and redefining possible. Tim is attending his senior year at Ithaca College, studying “Communications Studies” in New York. Tim has already taken a path as a motivational speaker, a blind adventurer, and released his first book It’s Impossible Until You Do It on December 10th.
“With Patient Advocate Foundation’s help, I am going to conquer many mountains in my life, and in the process, I’m going to be able to provide support to make a difference in so many other’s lives like mine.”
