Parker, 3, cancer, I wish to have a backyard playset

On May 29, 2019, Parker's family heard the words no parent ever wants to hear: "Your child has cancer." They will never forget that day, but thanks to Make-A-Wish®, May 29 is now an anniversary tied to happy memories. On May 29, 2020, Parker's life-changing wish was granted!

"When he got diagnosed with leukemia, we couldn't let him play at the public parks with all the germs," said Parker's mom, Chelci. "Now, any time Parker wants to play at the park, we can just take him outside to the backyard."
