As many of us have seen, there exist well-known national efforts to fulfill wishes of sick children. Sadly, Elliott will never likely be included largely because he is totally unable to articulate his wishes. So as friends and family we must advocate for him with wishes that have potential to improve the quality of his life. And we all have little doubt that the greatest promise for a brighter future for Elliott – as well as children like him – is funding carefully targeted research to tackle undiagnosed neurological disorders. And as the phrase makes clear, this research will ONLY happen if WE FUND it. To help fund this specialized medical research, please make your tax deductible donation to Dr. Vanderver's research at the Children's National Medical Center using this link.
So please consider supporting efforts to help bring a smile – and optimum potential – for our darling and resilient little Elliott.
In addition to supporting medical research, you can also help cover the extraordinary other diect expenses associated with Elliott's care by making a contribution to Wishes for Elliott using PayPal or sending a check.
We also recognize that not everyone is in a financial position to contribute but may have other ways you can assist in kind. Please visit the How to Help section of the site and let us know if you have some skills or resources that could assist us in the campaign.
Please feel free to use the link above to donate using PayPal. If you would prefer to mail a check, please make it out to Elliott Conecker's parents (Gabi or John Conecker) and send it to:
