Our father, Junior (Ernest F. Conner Jr.) is 50 years old and is suffering from advanced stages of liver disease. His doctors at the University of North Carolina Hospital have told us that his only option is a life-saving liver transplant.
Dad is the loving husband of Beth Conner, a wonderful father and stepfather, grandfather to six and good friend to many. Dad has always lived in Black Mountain, graduated from Charles D. Owen High School, served for 24 years full time as a fireman for The Black Mountain Fire Department, and volunteered and worked part time at other fire departments. He is a member of the First Baptist Church of Swannanoa. Due to his declining health, he is no longer able to work or do many things he has always done. Dad is one of the most gracious people you will ever meet and once he receives his transplant, he looks forward to becoming an active member of his church and community again.

We had our first “the call” that there was a liver waiting for us in Chapel Hill on Monday, April 27th… But no sooner than we got to the car they called back and the liver was no good… This was a little sad, but it gave us hope that Daddy is going to get a new liver! Hopefully we will be getting another one of those phone calls soon!! Please come and join us on Thursday, May 14th at the Texas Roadhouse… Bring your flyer or mention that you are there for Junior Conner so 10% of your bill will go to Daddy’s medical bills!
