Parker's Story:
Parker is a 13-year-old boy who loves playing baseball and the trombone. He also loves being with his family, especially his younger brother. The two of them love riding dirt bikes together.

On November 25, 2020, Parker was diagnosed with Acute Myleloid Leukemia (AML). Immediate treatment was required, so Parker was rushed to Doernbecher Children’s Hospital in Portland.

Parker has spent over 65 days in the hospital receiving treatments and overcoming hurdles due to a few adverse reactions his body has had to the chemotherapy.

In January 2021, Parker and his family received great news. Parker’s younger brother, Ryder, is a perfect match for Parker’s needed bone marrow transplant. For Ryder, it means the world to him to help save his brother’s life.

Parker has now endured three rounds of chemotherapy and is scheduled for the bone marrow transplant at the end of March 2021.

To prepare for the transplant, Parker will undergo an intensive ten-day chemotherapy treatment.

Parker has had a very challenging year and been through so much. He continues to be brave, optimistic, and full of joy.

Parker will be adopted as a Sparrow to Cascade Christian High School. Cascade Students will work hard to raise money for Parker through sponsored community service.
