Thank you so much for supporting me as I fight cancer! My name is Parker Lamb and I'm 2 1/2 years old. Here's a little bit about my story so thus far:
In May, 2021 Parker went in for, what we thought was, a routine surgery to remove a blocked saliva duct in his tongue. However, during surgery it was discovered that he did not have a blocked salvia duct but a large mass in his tongue.
The mass was sent off for biopsy to the Cleveland Clinic. After waiting almost 6 weeks for an official diagnosis, we received the devastating news that the mass was malignant: Ewing Sarcoma. Ewing Sarcoma is typically found in the bone and in children over the age of 10. Although what he has is very rare, thank God it is treatable.
After we went for a second opinion at Lurie’s Children’s Hospital in Chicago we knew that was the best place for him to receive his treatment. Dr. Walterhouse is his primary oncologist and we feel confident he has the best soft tissue sarcoma team in the entire Midwest.
Parker started treatment in July and should hopefully have his last chemo treatment in May. This sweet boy meets every treatment, nauseous day, and sleepless night with tremendous heart and courage. Oftentimes, he comes home from chemo and immediately begins jumping on his trampoline or running around our basement without a care in the world. We are truly in awe of him and thankful every day he's ours! Thank you for your kindness and generosity. Our family is so incredibly thankful for the support and love we've received throughout this entire journey. Cheers to kicking cancer's butt!
