Hope for Audrey With New Insurance News
After months of worrying he would lose his job in December, and with it the family's insurance, Chad Parrott is excited to announce his employment has been extended and therefore, his insurance - helping to save his daughter, Audrey.
As hundreds ban together for Audrey Parrott, an 8-year-old girl from Fox Point with leukemia, her family was fearful of how they'd continue to approach the ongoing and expensive medical care their daughter would need. Chad Parrott, Audrey's father, was going to lose his job in December and along with it, the family's insurance.
But just a few weeks ago, Chad got a phone call from his current employer, Stark Investments.
"They’ve extended my contract at Stark through June as well as extending some insurance benefits," Chad said. "It’s a testament to Brian (Stark) and Mike’s (Roth) commitment to not only running a good business, being good humanitarians."
