Thank you to all of the golfers, volunteers and sponsors who made yesterday’s Third Annual Pounding For Parker Foundation Golf Tournament a success!
The Pounding For Parker Foundation announces the funds raised from the launch of the Foundation’s celebratory events are more than $130,000.
Seven-year-old Parker Cowherd and his family had just been through a lot. It was November 2015 and he had been diagnosed with a rare form of brain and spinal cancer. Soon after, he underwent surgery and began chemotherapy.
Doctors told his parents he wouldn’t live to see his first birthday. However, he beat the odds! After five years of chemo, Jimmy was able to ring the bell, signifying the end of chemo!
In October, 2016 18 leading brain cancer researchers and clinicians met at Stanford University to discuss opportunities and plans for bringing new treatments to oligodendroglioma.
