Military Child of the Week - Bailey Parker
Today is a very special Military Child Salute as we give a big “Two paws up” to Bailey Parker and her entire family.
Bailey is 5 years old and in July of this year she was diagnosed with cancer. While there’s a lot of technical descriptions for her cancer, Bailey recently underwent surgery at St. Jude’s Hospital in Memphis, TN, where she will be for a number of months undergoing chemotherapy and radiation treatments.
Her Daddy is SSGT Will Parker with the U.S. Marines who is currently stationed in Pensacola, Florida. Of course right now he’s on leave as SSGT Parker and his whole family are in Memphis to be near the hospital with Bailey.
There’s still time to get your video entry in for our April Month of the Military Child Video Contest. Last year our contest was on while my human-owner was finishing his Basic Training at Fort Benning, GA. That enabled him to pick the winner. This year we are praying for his protection and safe return home as he prepares to deploy which also explains the picture I’m using with the post today.
It’s really easy to enter this years contest. Head on over to my special General Sarge Contest YouTube channel, watch my video introduction and then submit your video entry for the contest.
You can even watch the video right here for details about the contest too!
Tell your military friends and spread the word about the contest!
