WEST SPRINGFIELD — A West Springfield orthodontist has teamed up with the family of a teenage patient who was paralyzed in a swimming accident to share a story of resilience.

Kicking off a campaign called "Patients of Inspiration," Yanni Family Orthodontics enlisted a marketing coordinator to make a 7-minute video that focuses on 16-year-old Conor McCormick's life and outlook since his injuries left him confined to a wheelchair.

"'Patients of Inspiration' gives the men and women in our community a voice to share their stories and inspire others," Dr. Janice Yanni said in a statement. "We wanted to cover this story for so many reasons. ... Conor's attitude, his determination and faith have affected myself, my family, my staff. ... I wanted to do everything in my power to help him."

The video, which has been viewed about 33,000 times on Facebook, features interviews with McCormick, his family, friends and several other people who know him. Most of those interviewed expressed pride about McCormick's positive outlook and determination to succeed in the face of his disability.

"My favorite thing about Conor is that he never gives up," Jeremy McCormick, Conor's father, said in the video. "He works very hard at everything he does."
