Parker's Story


Parker Reese was born early at 33 weeks on May 7, 2006 at 9:03 am.  She weighed 3 pounds 12 ounces.  She was born with a rare birth defect known as congential diaphragmatic hernia. 

Our sweet girl's body was too damaged to survive surgery.  After 20 hours of life we had to make the hardest decision of our lives.  We took Parker off life support & watched her take her last breath in her Daddy's arms.  I believe it's where she felt safest. 

In January 2008 we founded a 501c3 non-profit in her memory helping families like our own.
