Tatum Parker is a 10-year old fourth grade student at Spring Mill Elementary School. Tatum was originally diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma in her right femur on July 19, 2006 She endured a years worth of chemotherapy and three major surgeries to remove the tumor. She was cancer free for eighteen months until it returned in her right lung in November 2008. She endured another years worth of chemotherapy along with twenty-five radiation treatments. She is once again cancer-free! It was Tatum's wish to give back to her "cancer friends", so we started Tatum's Bags of Fun to bring hope and a smile to each child faced with one of life's toughest challenges- fighting cancer.
