Meet Parker! She was born 3 years ago with a very rare (and only recently diagnosed) genetic condition called HIST1H1E Syndrome. Since the day she was born, Parker’s family has embraced this strong, smiley, happy girl and adjusted to their “new normal.” Parker’s mom, Kimberly, shares the importance of mourning the loss of not having a “typical” child, and then embracing the incredible and often unexpected joy this child can provide on a daily basis. Kim has an incredible support system with friends and family and of course sun reflexology is always a nice escape (even if only for 20 minutes). Kim has learned from her amazing little girl that no matter what life throws you, to never, ever give up! Kim is a Financial Advisor at UBS and since Parker’s birth she has turned her focus to helping families think through and prepare for the financial implications of their lives with a child with special needs. She has also recently launched a foundation called the Parker Avery Initiative to fund research for children with this same syndrome since so much is still so unknown. For anyone who knows Kim, she is kind, open, a go-getter and a true inspiration.
