Lee Goldberg is famous for being on News Center Maine...but first and foremost, he is a father.


And as a Dad, he has had the agonizing task of watching his son fight for a better life. His 15-year-old son Connor is about to have a second brain surgery to help with chiari malformation.

What is that? According to Google: Chiari malformation (kee-AH-ree mal-for-MAY-shun) is a condition in which brain tissue extends into your spinal canal. It occurs when part of your skull is abnormally small or misshapen, pressing on your brain and forcing it downward.

Lee has been trying to protect Connor, who at 15 deserves his privacy - but Lee also is a dad. A dad who is scared for his son and wanted to see if he could gather up some positive vibes....

I think we can do that for Connor, for Lee and for all those who have kids dealing with chiaria malformation. It affects enough in Maine that there was a Conquer Chiari Walk last year in Saco.

A speedy recovery and all our 'juju' to you and your family...
