San Diego has a happening night life, a host of tourist attractions, and plenty of fine places to eat and enjoy entertainment, but to truly understand the heart of San Diego look no further than the recent cancer fund raiser held at Sycuan Casino for six-year-old Parker Shaw, an unfortunate cancer victim. The city's spirit can truly be heartwarming.
Hundreds of people gathered Saturday at the parking lot outside Sycuan Casino in El Cajon for “Parker Palooza,” a fundraiser held for a local 6-year-old boy living with kidney cancer.
Parker David Shaw was diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma, a rare form of cancer. He’s a patient at Rady Children’s hospital, where his mother works.
Parker has been receiving treatment there, but his family wants to raise enough money to take him to a hospital in New York where he can get more advanced treatment.
Saturday’s fundraiser began at noon and lasted five hours.
