Parker's battle with brain tumor.

This past week my very dear friends Joshua Knelson and Alyssa Clarke were hit with some of the worst news imaginable as a parent. Their 13-month old son Parker was admitted to the hospital due to some severe flu like symptoms, it was later discovered that there was a tumor growing on Parkers brain stem. Parker was rushed to the Children’s hospital in Calgary where he would undergo a very lengthily and risky surgery. Thankfully the surgery went well and the doctors were able to remove 95% of the tumor. At this time, it is still uncertain what the road to recovery will be, however what we do know is that it will be a lengthily and costly process. I am starting this GoFundMe to help raise money to support the family to keep their head above water during these tough times. If you can find it in your heart to make a donation that would be greatly appreciated. It’s understandable that not everybody is in the same financial situation which may hinder your ability to make a donation. If you’re unable to make a donation, may I please ask that you share this to help spread awareness, every little bit helps and even something as simple as a share will go a long way.
