Fulton man, Tim Conners, is a blind cancer survivor and an outdoors enthusiast who plans on climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro.

At just 15 years old Tim was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia. After winning the first battle with cancer, it came back in his optic nerve. Within days he lost his vision. Tim doesn’t let this stop him from following his biggest dreams. In fact he believes that losing his sight has given him a clear path in life.

“I’m able to see things from a better perspective now. I feel I’m a better leader, I’m a better person, I’m better.. all around (person) to be able to make an impact. The impact that I’m making wouldn’t be possible if I hadn’t gone through everything, as rough as it was, to be here today.”

Conners is planning on hiking the highest peak in Africa after graduating from Ithaca College in May. He has also self published a book, It’s Impossible Until You Do It, filled with memoirs of his life and daring inspiration.

Tim’s goal is to fundraise $500,000 to help others who are going through the same medical difficulties. He has created the K2 Adventures Foundation, “whose mission is to provide care for children, adults and families with special needs and or life changing medical circumstances by providing services, support and funds that they can use for educational and medical enrichment.” You can find out more about Tim, purchase his book and donate to his organization on his website.
