Our sweet boy…our Cheeky Monkey…will be 19 on July 21st. If he was still living, he would have graduated from high school last year. As his mom, I often wonder if he would have gone to college and what his dream job would have been. Would he have a girlfriend and would he like the Pittsburgh Pirates baseball team just as much as his dad. I miss him terribly but I am also thankful that he is no longer in pain of any kind, and that his wheelchair is no longer needed. I bet he runs fast! When I get sad, I turn my focus to him running fast on those streets of gold.
In celebration of Braden’s 19th birthday, we are holding a birthday bash to raise money for a cure. We are very close to clinical trials. Wouldn’t it be cool to say one day that your donation was part of finding a cure?! 100% of your donation goes to research too.
We made Braden a promise that we would keep fighting for a cure. Please consider joining us in lighting up Braden’s birthday cake to make it glow so brightly that a cure will be found for his friends who are still living. All donations are tax deductible.
Suggested “Donation Levels” are listed on the side, but please know that any dollar amount is accepted and appreciated.
