Braden Hofen is a miracle thanks to experimental treatment regimens. He has been fighting Stage IV neuroblastoma for the past 5.5 years and experienced two remissions. On July 8th a new cancer was found. And now they need something special.

It's time army. It's time to give it all you've got. Some of us have been around for years - some have been around since the beginning of this journey - some we have added along the way. We are going to combine all our efforts to send this amazing family on a vacation that they would NEVER do for themselves. They have given SO MUCH over the years to us. Let's give back to them.

Let's see how fast we can raise this money. We have a big goal. And it needs to be met quickly. I have faith we can do this, and far exceed the lofty goal that has been set.

Donate and then share this on any and all social media you are connected to. Let's make an amazing memory for these angels.

What can I say. We love the Hofen's. What a testament to the community that is Braden's Army. I wanted to personally thank each and everyone of you personally, but that would simply take too long. Each donation was made out of love for this family and every dollar was important. I hope that this fund continues to grow over time as we don't have to stop here. Keep it coming. Keep sharing this site. Thank you so much for creating some memorable detours for this family.

How about we expand the goal. We can keep it going once we surpass this. I will only expand this goal once but know it will go well beyond.

I continue to be humbled by this army. Donations are pouring in at an unbelievable rate. We will hit our goal before lunch if that continues. WOW!!!

I wanted to let you know that we don't have to stop at our goal amount. I anticipate it going well beyond that $5,000 goal. I hope it does so they can use that additional money to help defer the many medical expenses that arise.

I am greatful to be a part of Braden's Army. They have taught me so much. And this group continues to keep my hope alive.
