In December of 2003 I had the opportunity to meet one of the bravest and most special people I have ever been lucky enough to know. Gregory Parrish was a 10 year old who had been battling brain tumors from neurofibromatosis type I since he was 2 years old. A damaged liver had forced him to stop chemotherapy, the tumors had taken 90% of his eye sight, and he had just begun radiation therapy when we met. He had the biggest smile in the world and gave the best high fives you can imagine. Greg lost his battle in the fall of 2006, but he never lost his spirit or his courage. He is still an inspiration to me and to everyone else who's life he touched. When I have my head shaved it will be in honor of Big G.
Please support me with a donation to the St. Baldrick's Foundation. This volunteer-driven charity funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization except the U.S. government.
Your gift will give hope to infants, children, teens and young adults fighting childhood cancers. So when I ask for your support, I'm really asking you to support these kids. Thank you!
