Local business plans surprise for Cottonwood teen with cancer

13-year-old Parker Reynolds is a lot like other kids his age.

"I like reading and making stuff, I guess. I like being creative, I like playing video games a lot," he said.

Since he was diagnosed with leukemia a month ago, gaming has been a source of comfort for him.

Parker's parents have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of support they've received from the community.

"Everyone's been really great about reaching out on Facebook and text and... Got a whole bag of get well cards from his classmates, and his classmates and teachers have been putting on fundraisers for him at track meets and the community here," said Brenda and Robert Reynolds.

One of the people offering his support is David Eaves.

Eaves just started a computer repair company with his business partner called Tech Remedy, but so far they've put all their proceeds into building a gaming computer for Parker.

"I myself lost my mom a few years back to cancer and I kind of know how it is to just find that escape and just not have to deal with things for a period of time," he said.

Tech Remedy plans to keep the computer a surprise from Parker until there's a finished product.

They are hoping community donations will help add to what they've already collected.
