Say hi to our newest kid, Parker! Parker is 9 years old, and cannot wait to become a train conductor!
Everything in his hospital room is trains. Model trains, train tracks, everything!
We were so excited to introduce him to Conductor Brian!
Conductor Brian visited Parker in Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC, and they instantly hit it off.
He was so excited when we told him we'd be bringing in Conductor Brian -- he and his mom practiced asking questions beforehand! We didn't get a great picture (Parker didn't want to lose any time posing for pictures), but it's only his first friendship moment of many during his cancer journey!
Parker is hoping to get approval from his doctors to visit his new friend at the tracks soon!
