About The Tatum Parker Project
The mission of The Tatum Parker Project is to positively impact the lives of Indiana pediatric cancer patients.  The main project is to provide a Bag of Fun to every child diagnosed with cancer in Indiana.  Bags of Fun are backpacks filled with age-appropriate games, toys, and activities that give a child a better day, a smile and something to focus on other than their illness.  The bags also give parents the reassurance that someone understands.  The Bags of Fun are delivered to the children within the first few weeks of the child’s diagnosis.  The second project is to invest in pediatric cancer research.  Since inception we have donated $50,000 specifically to pediatric cancer research organizations.  Finally, we’re currently developing programs to help children and their families deal with the day-to-day aspects of their illness: financial, healthcare, psychological.  For more information, please visit
