Turning Stumbling Blocks Into Stepping Stones Education Presentation: We are also thrilled to have, Perry Parker, CSL Behring Gettin’ in the Game Athlete, join us to present Turning Stumbling Blocks Into Stepping Stones. Growing up with hemophilia A, Perry was told many times by his doctors and nurses that he couldn’t do certain things, particularly when it came to sports. With his parents’ support and encouragement, Perry pushed himself to explore what he could do, which led to a lifelong love of golf. Perry’s brother also has hemophilia, and their parents wanted them both to be free to make their own choices.
Since as far back as he can remember, Perry has known two things: he has hemophilia, and he would be a pro golfer. Perry’s parents always encouraged him to pursue his interests. For Perry, this led to a professional golf career, including more than 30 professional tournament wins, playing numerous international tours, and founding and continued involvement with the CSL Behring Gettin’ in the Game℠ Junior National Championship. Perry wants others to know that bleeding disorders do not have to be a game changer, and he has lots of tips to share on how to make dreams come true.
Thank you to our community connection sponsor CSL Behring!
