Every year Graham & Company and GCP participates in the American HeartWalk in downtown Birmingham. In 2016, our team “Prayers for Parker” walked in honor of one of GCP’s associates, Ashley Neil and her daughter Parker who was born with HLHS. Since this particular year meant more to our team, I asked Ashley to see if she could paint little Parker’s foot and stamp it on a piece of paper. I was able to scan the picture of Parker’s painted foot in and vectorized it to create a “heart” out of Parker’s little foot.
“…We are excited to be supporting the AHA and their fight to end heart disease for children like Parker and for all of those suffering from heart disease. Hope to see you in Uptown on Saturday!” - Facebook Post
HeartWalk T-shirt 2017
In 2017, our team “Prayers for Parker” walked again in honor of sweet little Parker. However, this time our t-shirt said, “The day we have been hoping for and praying about finally came. Parker received a new heart on May 22nd, 2017 during the wee hours of the morning. According to her doctor and Ashley, “her heart is banging away and looks great!” Today we walk to honor Park and thank God for answering our prayers.”
