It’s been more than six weeks since 13-year-old Connor McKemey was severely burned in an accident at his parents’ Tega Cay home, yet support for the family remains strong.
Red and white bracelets bearing the words “McKemey Strong” are being sold online and will be sold this weekend by area merchants and during Tega Cay Parks and Recreation events, said city resident Scott Shirley.
“We’ve all talked about how this family has touched us in this community and how we all feel their pain,” said Shirley, who did not know the McKemeys before Connor’s accident.
