Phil Parker is very familiar with hurdles. An All American Track and Field Athlete and Middle School track coach, he has had great success jumping them most of his life. He began his biggest race on February 19, 2012, at Emory Hospital in Atlanta, Ga. The "event" began with a stem cell transplant for Multiple Myeloma, a rare blood cancer. In support of Phil’s “race”, "Hurdles for Hope" is a fund and faith raising campaign. Our goal is to raise at least enough to cover the out of pocket expenses for the hospital. He is on a Medical Leave of Absence from his beloved job from mid- Feb. 2012 until he returns in August 2012 for the next school year. His doctors said his prognosis is excellent, and he and Anne look forward to August when he returns to teaching and coaching. Until then, they will incur out-of-pocket medical expenses and deductibles, plus normal living expenses. The transplant is mostly covered, but as with most insurance, there are many unknowns. He will be unable to work for nearly five months and Anne, as his primary caregiver, will be unable to work as a substitute teacher. You may donate via PayPal OR directly to Phil Parker Medical Fund, Wells Fargo Bank c/o Angela Mashburn, Vice President 37 Magnolia Street Roswell GA 30075 Thank you all in advance! Your prayers will provide the strength needed to endure the "hurdles". With everyone’s support, he will be able to be back on the track this fall! Please join our Facebook Group, Hurdles of Hope and/or carringbridge.org/visit/philparker to learn more about Phil and keep in touch with progress.
