Seven-year-old Parker Cowherd and his family had just been through a lot. It was November 2015 and he had been diagnosed with a rare form of brain and spinal cancer. Soon after, he underwent surgery and began chemotherapy.
In May 2016, Parker’s wish to be a Carolina Panther football player came true. Thanks to the Carolina Panthers and the Make-A-Wish Foundation, he spent the day with tight end Greg Olsen, sporting a #88 jersey and beanie to match Olsen’s trademark warmup attire.
