Former Gopher football player Connor Cosgrove isn't just a cancer survivor -- he's now actively helping other cancer patients.

Diagnosed with leukemia back in 2010, Connor says that some of the pain he felt during his chemotherapy treatments came from his shirt pulling on the IV line on his chest. So when he couldn't find clothes to accommodate, Connor designed a clothing line to solve the problem.

"ComfPort: Clothing With A Cause" is both for cancer patients and those who support them, with port tees and support tees.

For every shirt sold, another is donated to a patient in need.

Fox 9's Dawn Mitchell talked with Connor about his clothing line. Check it out in the video at the top of this post.
