Mission: Aaron Parker was diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukemia in November 1996. After 2 bone marrow transplants Aaron died on February 18, 1998, at age 23. With family and friends helping them financially, the Parker family wanted to pass on the blessing and help other families. By doing this they are hoping to extend the circle of caring to others. The entire family is affected when someone in the family has a life-threatening or chronic illness. To help the patient and family cope with the disease the foundation has developed several programs. Some of these programs were developed to help the patient and families alleviate stress, which accompanies some of the financial demands associated with chronic illness.
