Jasper Whataburger hosting Parson Blue Fundraiser

JASPER, TX (KTRE) -

After seeing the original story on KTRE about Parson Blue, the Whataburger in Jasper decided to help.

Parson Blue Herrington's condition took a downward spiral in October at the young age of 3-months-old. Doctors at the Children's Hospital in Houston told her family that they have only seen five cases like Parson Blue's in North America.

"She got a diagnosis of filamin A, a genetic disorder," Herrington said. "The message for today is to keep fighting."
