In the last few months, Parker's battle finally seemed, at times, to have been won; but things are not always as they seem. Last Saturday--May 21st--Parker eagerly participated in the "Relay for Life:" nearing the end of a particularly grueling round of radiation treatments, his mother wrote that, "we remain hopeful that the finish line is in sight." On Sunday, Parker woke up and was almost unable to stand. He is attended, right now, by hospice volunteers.
Please say a prayer for Parker, for his mother, Karin, father, Mark, and for his big brother, Austin.
