The team behind McConnell Real Estate Partners and The McConnell Foundation are proud to donate just shy of $100,000 to pediatric cancer research here in the Lowcountry. Jen and Josh McConnell, owners of the Isle of Palms-based real estate agency, have been dedicated to raising funds for pediatric cancer research at MUSC where their son Bodhi was treated when he survived a Stage 3 Neuroblastoma diagnosis at just five months old.
A portion of every commission at their real estate agency goes towards the fight for a cure, with the agency totaling $65,000 this year and $34,000 at their first annual gala for the Foundation back in June.
Bodhi’s doctor, Dr. Jacqueline Kraveka, heads the only research laboratory in South Carolina dedicated to pediatric cancer.
“We can’t overstate the impact the Children’s Hospital, Dr. Kraveka and all those who carried research forward prior to our experience had on us,” says the McConnells. “We thank God and we thank them at every opportunity. We are forever grateful, and will forever work to further the cause.”
