The Adair County Girl's and Boy's basketball teams will host Connor Anderson Appreciation Night during the Tuesday night, December 4, 2012 girl/boy doubleheader starting with the girls game at 5:30pmCT, with Marion County at John Burr Memorial Gymnasium, at Adair County High School, 526 John Adair Drive, Columbia, KY.

The recognition ceremony will take place prior to the boys game. Everyone is encouraged to wear their green Connor's Warrior t-shirt or something green to the game to show their support to Connor and his family.

Connor is a 9 year old 4th grade student at ACES. He was diagnosed with cancer when he was 2 1/2 years old and through treatment it went into remission. Connor's cancer returned this past summer. Also, he has a rare immune disease that leaves him very open to many common infections and illnesses. Through all this Connor has remained positive and seems to always have a smile on his face. Connor's bravery and positive attitude has been very amazing.

Connor has been receiving chemotherapy treatments, recently had surgery, and will soon have a bone marrow transplant. His sister, Mackensie, is his bone marrow donor. She is a second grade student at ACES. The community has been overwhelming in their support for Connor. We ask everyone to continue to pray for Connor and Mackensie. We ask for wisdom and guidance for his doctors, and comfort and support for his family.

Connor has been such a great inspiration to everyone in our community. Let\'s show our support and appreciation for Connor and his family by showing up in (green) force Tuesday night at the Adair County High School gym. We will be accepting donations at the door and girls and boys teams will be receiving donations to support Connor and his family. - Mark Fudge
