Parker is A 2 yr old boy who is the happiest ever. All smiles. At 3 months of age, he had a CT Scan done to determine he had Microcephaly. At 4 months old, he had a MRI that determined a very rare condition known as Semi-Lobar Holoprosencephaly. Also known as HPE. Parkerís brain failed to fully develop into two hemispheres. Now at 2, Parker cannot sit by himself, we work with him, and with support, he is able to sit by himself. Parker is unable to walk, but loves to stand on your lap if you hold him. Although Parker cannot talk, he still loves to make plenty of noises, laugh, and finds a lot of things amusing. Parker will be attending school next year, and will use a wheelchair. As of right now, we currently have a small car that can barely fit an infant stroller in it. We are just making ends meet with bills so far, so a wheelchair accessible van is out of the question with budget. I think with all Parker has been through so far in just 2 years of life, he deserves a van that would be able to transport him safely. To many, Parker is not heavy, to us, the parents, after having to carry Parker much of the time, he gets heavy. To lift Parker in and out of the car, struggling to get the stroller in and out of the trunk can be a handful at times. Parker sees many doctors and spends much of his time in therapy. Parker is able to appreciate what people do for him, he loves to put a smile on others faces on a daily basis. He would love if everyone would help him win this van. The van would put less stress on Parker having to get in and out of the car. He would have more room to eat on the go, as Parker is tube fed most of the time. Thanks everyone for reading out story, we thank you in advance for helping us out.
