Latest update on Parker

God has once again blessed us with the most WONDERFUL news. Parker had a full body PET scan yesterday to check for any areas of concern and the results came back ALL CLEAR! There is no evidence of the cancer spreading to any other part of her body. Even her right hand, where the tumor is located, is not lighting up anymore!!!! We are just so incredibly thankful for this wonderful news and to everyone for your prayers

Wednesday, August 16th, Parker will have surgery to remove the pointer finger of her right hand, where the tumor is located. Please continue to pray for our sweet baby as we take on this next phase of her journey. God hears our prayers and continues to bless us with good news and renewed strength and hope

Ewing sarcoma is a cancerous tumor that grows in the bones or in the tissue around bones (soft tissue)—often the legs, pelvis, ribs, arms or spine. Ewing sarcoma can spread to the lungs, bones and bone marrow.

Ewing sarcoma is the second most common type of bone cancer in children, but it is very rare. About 200 children and young adults are found to have Ewing sarcoma each year in the United States.

About half of all Ewing sarcoma tumors occur in children and young adults between ages 10 and 20.

It does not appear to be inherited (passed down in families).

If your child has Ewing sarcoma, the following symptoms may be present:

Swelling and soreness around the tumor area (commonly mistaken for a sports injury or the “bumps and bruises” every child gets)

A low fever that at first may seem to be caused by an infection

Bone pain, especially pain that worsens during exercise or at night

Limping, which is caused by a tumor on a leg bone
