A Little Request

Hello Friends. This is our little neighbor boy Brayden. He's 4 and a half. This is his soccer picture from last summer. Isn't he a cutie?
Last month he was diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma, a very rare form of cancer in children. It started out as leg pain that wouldn't go away a few months ago. In January doctors found a malignant tumor in his leg bone. Unfortunately the cancer has spread to his spine, jaw and nasal cavity. The last 6 weeks have been a total nightmare & roller coaster for him and his family. They are all amazingly strong and courageous. I don't know how they do it. They also have a younger son who turned 2 last month.

Please keep him in your thoughts, light a candle, say a prayer, anything......they could all really use it right now. They are just starting an aggressive 12 month plan involving, chemo, surgery, and radiation.

Here is another picture of him a couple of weeks ago, on a good day, after his 2nd round of chemo:

And, here is his little brother - painting with Ella. We have been helping watch him here and there during Brayden's hospital stays. We are just sick that this little boy (and his family) are going through something so awful. We are hoping for a miracle for him.

Thank you,
Linda
