Welcome to pennies4parker.wordpress.com
As you guys know, Parker had her first surgery!!!! IT WAS A SUCCESS!!! Thank you to everyone who purchased a bracelet and/or donated to the cause. WE HAVE MORE TO GO, AS FAR AS SURGERIES and TREATMENTS, SO PLEASE CONTINUE TO SPREAD THE WORD….as we travel on this long road to helping her achieve a “normal” life!
Parker was born on 1/17/2012 with a condition called Cystic Hygroma. This is a result of a blockage of the lymphatic system, causing fluid to accumulate in a cyst filled sac…in Parker’s case, the sac being the size of a grapefruit (almost a third of her 8lb body).
This was a condition, we as parents have known about since the first trimester of pregnancy. It was something we thought we could keep secret and deal with on our own, but the surgery requires an emphasis on a serious complication…her nerves are now intertwined with the tiny cysts in her mass. We have spoken to several doctors/surgeons throughout the United States and now have narrowed it down to who we would like to trust with our baby’s life.
The unfortunate part, is that our insurance will only pay a portion of the large bill and bills to come. So we are selling these $5 bracelets to try and cover some of the cost for the surgery and future treatments. We ask that if you cannot purchase a bracelet or donate to the cause, that you at least keep us in your prayers! You all have become family for our daughter. Thank you!
Chris, Amber, and baby Parker.
