Parker's mom, Cortney proudly shared this message on December 29, 2014- "It is with great joy that I can announce that Parker is on his way into his last spinal EVER! We may have landed inpatient last night unexpectedly but either way, Chemo ends today!
Parker Ragone, Age 5 was diagnosed in 2011 with Pre B Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (Pre B- ALL), an aggressive cancer of the blood. Parker who was in remission and doing very well with the maintenance portion of his treatment receiving physical, speech and occupational therapy. He was originally expected to take daily oral Chemotherapy until 2015. His treatments caused side effects including fatigue and neuropathy (damage to the peripheral nerves, especially those that branch out through the arms, legs, fingers and toes). Parker understands his condition referring to it as "Kemia" and knows that sometimes he can't do things that other children his age can do.
