Parker's Story

Support Research for a Cure

By Michelle Turkington

Every three days, eight-year-old Parker’s mom helps him inject medicine into one of his veins. Parker has severe hemophilia. Signs of the disorder, which affects the blood’s ability to clot, began appearing when he was an infant. His mother Kristie told us, “As he went on, the bruises just kept coming.”  Kristie had no family history and no complications with her first child, so she was stunned to learn she was a carrier for hemophilia.  She found out only after Parker’s little brother, Oliver, was diagnosed, too.
