My name is Parker Smith. I’m 16 years old and I am a junior at Hardin Valley Academy. I have played baseball since I was 5, and started playing the violin in 6th grade. The 2nd semester of freshman year odd things started happening to me. My speech got slow, and my voice got weak, my mouth would hang open as if what I was listening to was the most interesting thing I had ever heard! We went to many doctors who had no clue as to what was wrong with me. Finally, we went to Nashville where the Vanderbilt hospital is and within the hour they suspected that I’ve got Wilson’s disease. Since that time I have had trouble doing pretty much everything. But I’ve learned a lot and wouldn’t have my life any other way! Praise God!!
