Former LSU stars finding inspiration from cancer patient
BATON ROUGE - Parker Rivera lit up when his favorite LSU Tigers, Anthony Johnson and Jarvis Landry, walked through the door at the St. Jude Affiliate Clinic at Baton Rouge's Our Lady of the Lake Hospital.
What Parker didn't realize was that he was the inspiration for the future NFL stars.
"We love to show hope and reach out to kids that don't have the same chances because of an illness," said defensive tackle Anthony Johnson.
Jarvis Landry shared the same sentiment.
"Just being a part of his life, in this kind of way," said Landry. "And after the game, whether it's a text or call or visit, Parker can know I'm in his corner to the end."
There's no doubt this is a friendship built for life.
For more on the story, Sports 2's Brian Holland was there for the visit.
