The Ethan Parsley Foundation
Ethan Parsley is an 11 year old boy from Knoxville, TN, who was diagnosed with a rare bone cancer called Ewing Sarcoma in Dec. 2014. Since then he has had several surgeries, countless rounds of chemo, and 28 radiation treatments. In September, Ethans scans showed progression of his cancer and a new treatment plan was formed. His chemo plan changed and he is currently fighting the progression. Please pray that Ethan has positive results from his new chemo plan and that he feels better and stronger everyday. As Ethans medical bills are quickly adding up, his family would much appreciate a donation of any amount towards his care. Thank you to all of you for your prayers, love and support!
As many of you already know, Ethan is now in the final chapter of his cancer journey. He is resting comfortably at home, as his bone pain is now being managed by home health with a pain pump. He is sleeping the majority of the time, and for this reason we are setting strict limitations on visitors. We appreciate every single message, text, call and email-if we don't respond, please know that we got your message and love you very much. The amount of love and support we are receiving from you is amazing and overwhelming. Big E has gone viral and what a blessing it is!! We wanted to bring awareness to childhood cancer and we are so proud that Ethan's precious smile has done just that! If you see his younger brother, Logan, please be mindful of his feelings right now, as he is still trying to digest what is happening. Thank you for loving Ethan and for all of your prayers for the past 12 months. He will receive the healing we have all been praying for, in heaven instead of on earth. We are thankful to an amazing God who loves Ethan even more than we do-and who wants him to be happy, healed and whole again in heaven. Only God can deliver such perfection.
Big E is back in clinic today for chemo. His counts are even lower today than they were for the last round, so please pray he handles the chemo ok. He is also having severe bone/joint pain that started on Sunday. He can't get up or walk on his own and is back to using his walker and wheelchair. It isn't clear what is causing the pain, but it is a possibility that he is having an arthritic flare up from his juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. There are other possibilities as well, but no scans are planned until Thursday if the pain still persists. Prayers please that the pain subsides and he handles this round of chemo like a champ! #EthanStrong #hairisoverrated
I've prayed for Ethan for as long as I've known about him. I admire your faith and your strength. May God hold you all close and bring you peace only He can.
Continued prayers for your family! Keep us posted with the updates. Please, message me if I can help in any way.
