Mile #84 Parker
Parker Kress was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma in December of 2014 at 13 years old. He underwent a year of chemotherapy and had surgery to remove the tumor from his leg. This consisted of removing 5 inches of his tibia and replacing it with a cadaver bone. Unfortunately Parker's leg became infected and in March of 2017, and he had his right leg amputated. This was Parker's 7th surgery.
It didn't stop Parker though. It didn't even slow him down. He tried out for and made his high school basketball team, and he is currently taking Jiu Jitsu lessons.
Parker has also made it his mission to pay forward all the kindness he has received while in treatment.
Parker is now 17 and just hit his 3 year milestone of being NED.
