Clay Parker

Clay Parker, Family Nurse Practitioner works with chronically ill children in the transitional care unit at Vidant Medical Center.

On Sept. 8, 2010, Clay's 2-year-old son was diagnosed with a Wilm's Tumor, a rare kidney cancer. A talented pediatric surgeon, Dr. David Rodeberg, had joined the Vidant team, thanks to the contributions to the Vidant Health Foundation. Clay and his wife attribute their gratitude to the Foundation for bringing that service back to our community and saving their son's life. 

After their son's diagnosis, the Parkers started a backyard fundraiser that has now grown into an annual golf tournament to give back to the Foundation.

We want to know how the Vidant Health Foundation has impacted your life. Please share your story with us here.
