Meet Parker: 2017 Speak Now for Kids Family Advocacy Day Hero

Parker is the happiest 8-year-old boy you could hope to meet, and his personality shines bright. You would never know by looking at him he was born with only half a heart.

During a routine 20-week ultrasound, the technician had a hard time getting a good look at Parker’s heart, so his mother, Casey, had to return two weeks later to give it another try. She left that appointment not knowing anything was wrong until she received a call to schedule a genetic study and a fetal echocardiogram with a high-risk obstetrician (OB).
