Just clicked the link to your donation page. Reading your story and seeing the picture really puts things in perspective for those of us with children. I made a donation and hope others here will help out as well. These bills can really add up quick. Again our prayers are with your family.

Just want to tell people to be cautious with donating to this. Nothing against you thebrokepoet, but it just seems a little unusual that you just find out your baby might have SMA and you still have to wait 10 days to find out for sure and you already have a page about it and are taking donations. Again please bare with me if I am in any way wrong, but with everything that has happend lately I just wanted to caution people to be careful. I just find it odd that the day you get a POSSIBLE diagnosis you have a page up and are taking donations the same exact day. If this is for real your family is in my prayers, but it just seems like you jumped on the donation band wagon very fast for something that hasn't even been completely diagnosed yet.

Things quickly spiraled as we found out he had a collapsed left lung and air outside of his lung on the right side and near his heart No flu or viral sickness yet a infection causing phnemonia . He is on full respiration and a feeding tube and had to have an emergency operation putting a tube into his chest to drain air and fluid from around the lung . Doctors are thinking, saying everything points towards SMA type 1 . A fatal disease to 90% of infants before they are 2 Me and my wife are now waiting for the official diagnosis which will take roughly 10 days due to the fact it is genetic testing . I have a feeling we maybe in for the longest few months of our lives . Please send us your prayers and positive thoughts . Please like his Facebook page "Prayers for Connor" ... Welcome to Facebook ... Please share the page. Please . Please, pray pray pray . He needs every one he can get . Thanks for reading

The page says the child has been diagnosed with the disease as of the 17th.

I find it interesting they edited it. When I first read it they said the dna test would take 10 days. Now that is no longer on the page. Seems fishy! Also seems weird why they wouldn't have people donate to a site like this.

They should look into Ronald McDonald house as well since they provide alot of services. Im sure we can both agree that we hope your suspicions are wrong. Im not worried about the $25 I donated as much as I would be about someone who could make up such a thing as this. Lets simply hope thats not the case.

Hey lockdown . Find a tall building and jump off it . I have asked you all for nothing but prayers and positive thoughts . People asked me how to help . I don't know how clear I can be . Go #@#@#@#@ yourself

Neither, me or my wife made his prayers page . We were asked if it could be made . Neither me or wife have asked for a penny from anyone . We were told people were asking how to help . My son has not been diagnosed yet . He has a prognosis of SMA type one . Doctors say they are not really looking in any other direction . Our diagnosis is expected back this week . It is genetic testing that must sent to MAYO Clinic . Monday I brought my son in for labored breathing and a baby cough . My son is now on full life support . If you have kids hug them . If you are a jackass that knows nothing and spews hate and negativity . Then shut the hell up and go back to your basketball forum .

I am not leaving my sons side . And without the care he is currently receiving he would die . I have cried for 6 days straight . My tolerance for idiocracy is at a all time low . I am neither Manti Te'o or Lance Armstrong . Deception free . Look up the disease before you speak of it . My son deserve sooooooooooo much more than the the desease will ever allow him . It is fatal . I don't need a barbers opinion to tell me if someone is bald, and me and my wife don't need the doctor to tell us what is wrong with our son .

My thoughts go out to the little guy. I can't imagine how difficult this must be. Hang in there and remember we are here for you.

Don't let the bad ones get to you, brother. I've gone through the loss of a child, and don't don't wish it on my worst enemy. I will be praying for you and your family in this time of uncertainty. Keep Matthew 7:7-8 tucked in your heart and mind.

I will send best wishes as I do not believe in "God". "God" would not let this happen to your son.

Say what you want man. Like I said in my post if your son is sick my prayers and thoughts are with you. I just found it strange that someone who hadn't posted on this site in a month felt the need to make a post about his sick child the day he finds out his diagnosis. Then you make a post below wanting to get his facebook page viral. Really? I just saw a lot of red flags and threw it out there for people to be careful. I don't know about you, but when a complete stranger on a sportscard site post a link for donations I tend to want to make sure people are careful. Asking for peoples prayers on a sportscard site is the furthest place I would be if my son was dianosed with an deadly illness. I would be spending that time with friends and family.

Like and share his Facebook page "prayers for connor" ... Link ( Welcome to Facebook ) Only a couple likes away from 1000 in 48 hours ... How do I send this thing "viral" ? I want 1 million likes and 1 billion prayers

He is doing okay . Sleeping, stable and we hope to get some sleep tonight as well . We are working on getting two infections and pneumonia out of his lungs . The left lungs is much better inflated but will still not fully . Our genetic test results will hopefully be back at some point this next week . That is really when we decide our best move here . Incredibly scary . Praying

I feel like when you have a child , if necessary , you'd move heaven and earth for them . And that is exactly what I intend to do .

Appreciate your concern for the rest of us, but stick with your first couple sentences and call it good. No need to question the op and get them more upset. We are big boys and girls and can take care of ourselves.
