Parker Rayne Tutu Fundraiser

We recently found out that one of our faBOWlous® models, Parker Rayne Chase, is in need of a liver transplant. Parker suffers from Progressive Familial Intrahepati​c Cholestasis Type II (PFIC). This is an extremely rare genetic liver disease.

We have offered to do a fundraiser in her honor to help the family with medical and traveling expenses. For a limited time we will be donating $10 from every Parker Rayne Peppermint Tutu sold to the the Chase Family.

We met Leah, Parker's mom, through our Layla Grace Fundraiser. We actually began using her as one of our company photographers, and she never once mentioned her own struggles.

As time went on we began to get to know each other through Facebook and email and we began to read little snip-its here and there about doctor appointments.

To make a long story short we had to directly ask her about her precious Parker...She just kept taking 'product' photos and sending them to us...Never once mentioning her trials.

Leah has proved to be an incredibly private, strong, and Godly woman.

Parker's Miracles
The family truly believes that Parker is a miracle and that God has a very special plan for her life...Below are just a few miracles that have occured...And we are praying for more.

Parker was diagnosed at 9 months of age, and PFIC ALWAYS makes its appearance within the first 6 months of life. A miracle as she was older than this.

God again spared Parker's life when the 'Chase' family got the call from the doctor with the diagnosis stating that they had to go to a better hospitial in Louisiana. The doctor stated that because of the state Parker was in the family needed to get to the E.R. right away. The hospital was almost 2 hours away, and they made it there in an hour flat. When they arrived Parker was in liver failure.

While in the hospital Parker caught a blood infection...She was literally on a survival rate of one day to the next...Yet, God healed her once again.
