Inspirations of Cheyenne "A True Hero"
My name is Cheyenne R. Bradley, I'm a 10 year old little girl who has Sickle Cell Anemia. Sickle Cell Anemia is a blood disorder that requires weekly blood transfusions.
Which led my parents to seek treatment at the Florida Cancer Center in Orlando. Unfortunately, my childhood is not like most kids my age. My free time is spent in hospitals, for testing, MRI's, Blood transfusions and EKG's.
By the age of 9, I had suffered two strokes which completely debilitated my motor skills and memory. In order to regain my full capacity I had extensive rehabilitation. To prevent further strokes the Doctors made the emergency decision to perform brain surgery. In order to give me a better quality of life a bone marrow transplant was suggested by my team of Doctors. We went on a waiting list to search for a perfect donor. (which means a 100% match) Luckily, my 11 year old sister Cymiah, who I call my "Angel" was a "perfect match."
By the grace of God, I received my transplant at All Children's Hospital (in St. Petersburg, FL) on May 15, 2013. I am on my 48th day of my 1 year recovery. My mom and I have been staying at the Ronald McDonald House, also in St. Pete. to complete my treatment and recovery. It is important to be near my team of doctors to ensure my transplant is successful.
My mother has been by my side since day one. She has been out of work without pay to make sure I'm properly taking care of. Seeing her trying to maintain her bills eats me up inside.This funding will help us in so many ways, such as financially and will help with rising medical expenses.
Each donation will be greatly appreciated. No donation is to small. Please share this information with your friends and family even your colleagues can get involved.

Cheyenne R. Bradley
Here to Report Good News, Cheyenne was released from the hospital today after having her second central line placed. Cheyenne is expected to intake 2 liters of fluid a day which has come to be really difficult, if she's expected to eat in the process. At this time, she on IV fluids at RMH until her (kidney function) levels are normal. Once she taking off two of her necessary medications her kidneys should recover at that time. So I'm asking everyone to please keep my little sunshine in your prayers daily.
May God Continue to bless you in all you do.
Cheyennne has been admitted at All Childrens Medical Center for a fever late Saturday evening. She developed an infection in her central line. Later this week they may have to remove the one line if the antibotics are not eliminating the infection. Due to this infection she has no appetite what so ever.
Please keep my lil hero Cheyenne in your prayers.
God Bless you all,
