Thanks to Wells Fargo Championship for helping share Parker’s story and for all the local community support you provide here in Charlotte!
“About 95% of all survivors of childhood cancer are going to have some long-term effects from their therapy or their cancer,” said Dr. Chad Jacobsen, the neuro-oncologist who leads Parker’s care. “About a third of those are going to be severe, with chronic or debilitating illnesses.”
The funding of the new translational research lab for pediatric cancer research at Levine Children’s is going to push Charlotte into the top tier of research facilities. We are so fortunate to have this type of facility in our backyard. These are the types of dollars that the Pounding For Parker Foundation continues to look to raise.
