A minor setback for a major comeback
I’m starting this fundraiser to help with medical expenses for my brother, Bladen Patton. Bladen is a very hardworking athlete. He plays football, basketball, and baseball (both traveling and for school). He is 14 years old and beginning his freshman year at Paoli Jr.-Sr. High School. He’s an all-around great kid who has been known for years by his teammates as “Superman” for his “superhuman strength, speed, and agility.”
On Tuesday, July 17th, Bladen was injured in an ATV accident. He was flown to Norton Children’s Hospital in Louisville, KY where he had to undergo surgery to repair a fractured arm and ankle. After his first surgery, he experienced some complications and had to have a second surgery on his arm in under 24 hours. On his 10th day in the hospital, he was released home. He has a very long road of physical therapy and emotional healing. 100% of these proceeds will go to Bladen and his family.
