JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-FORT SAM HOUSTON, Texas –
After a two-and-a-half-year battle with a rare childhood disease, one little girl has a big reason to celebrate.
Surrounded by her parents and a small group of medical staff, including Brooke Army Medical Center Commanding General Brig. Gen. Shan Bagby and Command Sgt. Maj. Thurman Reynolds, 7-year-old Sailor Parker recently rang the bell in the BAMC Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Clinic signifying she won her battle against Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia.
“Sailor we are so proud of you and how well you have done with your treatment,” said Air Force Lt. Col. (Dr.) Della Howell, pediatric hematologist/oncologist. “We couldn’t have asked for a better patient.”
