Teenager Brian Parks was diagnosed with a malignant tumor just over two years ago and has come to be known as “Superman” ever since. CountyLine Magazine has recently published an article describing his journey, which included radiation, chemotherapy, and lots of rehabilitation while he missed an entire year of school.
His case manager at school, John Arant, says “Brian relishes every moment he is given at life. No matter the hardship Brian is enduring, he comes to school with abundant joy. He commands respect not because of his disability but because of his mindset about his disability. He sees no barriers to his world and expects the same from others.”
