From Michelle Tackabery:
Gregory Parrish, the behind-the-bench staple of the Wolfpack men's basketball team who suffers from tumors of the brain that have rendered him almost completely blind, is in need of help with his medical bills. He has had several surgeries recently and the Pleasant Grove United Methodist Church is accepting donations on his behalf.
Gregory began sitting behind the NC State team bench and traveling with the team during the 2004-2005 season when Coach Herb Sendek got word that while he was at the Duke Brain Tumor Center, and participating in Hoop Dreams, he politely declined tickets to a Duke game because he was a Wolfpack fan. Greg was part of the team picture that was in every program for the 04-05 season. The guys called him "G-Man." We are season tickets holders and to my recall Gregory was at nearly every game cheering his butt off, dressed in red from head to toe.
