It’s difficult to see such a bright and vital young boy face a cancer diagnosis, and we’re going to do everything we can to make sure Blake’s wish comes true.

The Rich Parker Agency, a locally owned insurance firm that serves Columbia and the surrounding communities, is initiating a charity effort that to raise funds that will be used to grant a wish for Blake, a young Columbia resident who is battling a potentially terminal form of cancer.

Blake and his six siblings grew up in foster care, and the recent diagnosis of cancer caught Blake and his siblings, as well as his foster family, completely off guard. Even worse, the form of cancer Blake has been diagnosed with, osteosarcoma, is difficult to treat, and Blake faces a grim 20% chance of survival. Even as he battles cancer, Blake’s wish is modest: an iPad and a handful of programs that he can use to entertain himself and stay in touch with his family during his hospital stay.

“It’s difficult to see such a bright and vital young boy face a cancer diagnosis, and we’re going to do everything we can to make sure Blake’s wish comes true,” says Rich Parker, owner and manager of the Rich Parker Agency. Utilizing a large network of contacts, Parker and his team are reaching out to local community members, clients, and business associates to gather donations that will be used to fulfill Blake’s request.

The Rich Parker team is also constructing an online social media portal to draw in support from nearby families, and will publish a full page article regarding the charity drive in the latest edition of their monthly online magazine publication “Our Hometown,” which can be found here:

As part of a community involvement program, the Rich Parker Agency has committed to assisting at least one new Columbia-area charity every two months from here forward.
