Parker's Story:Parker is a freshman at Grants Pass High School. He loves playing sports, the trombone, and loves being with his family, especially his little brother, Ryder.
Parker was diagnosed with Acute Myleloid Leukemia (AML) on November 25, 2020.
Immediate treatment was required, so Parker was rushed to Doernbecher Children’s Hospital in Portland.
Doctors discovered that Ryder (Parker’s little brother) was a 100% match for a bone marrow transplant that Parker desperately needed.
In March 2021, both boys underwent treatment that saved Parker’s life.
Parker is currently in remission. He will continue to see his doctor every two weeks to ensure the cancer does not return.
This journey has forever changed Parker. Medically, he will always be monitored. However, this journey has also proven that he is a courageous fighter and it has bonded the two brothers for life.
Parker will be adopted as a Sparrow to Grants Pass High School. GPHS Students will work hard to raise money for Parker through sponsored community service.
