Courage for Caydyn

I created this account for my brother Justin and his fiance Britni. Their 11 year old son has a brain tumor, they have 4 kids and the hospital is an hour and a half away from where they live and with Justin having to work to pay the bills and keep afloat, unfortunately, he can't be up at the hospital with his fiance everyday and they both really need to be with each other and to be there for and with Caydyn.  They are not sure yet on if he has to do chemo and radiation or one or the other so I am trying to raise money to help them with bills in case things are not good and Justin would have to take off work. If any of you could please donate, even the smallest donation counts. 

This is the update on Caydyn after his surgery.

On August 17th 2018 at approximately 1:30pm Caydyns life was forever changed when we were told about his MRI results. He has been very courageous ever since hearing he has a mass on his pineal gland in his brain and well as hydrocephalus near the same area. For an 11 year old to stay strong when hearing those words "brain surgery" is pretty incredible. On Monday morning he was taken to the operating room to try and drain the fluid that was building up causing him extreme discomfort for the entire month of July and well most of August so far. He did amazing and is recovering well from that procedure. He is in the PICU for close monitoring and so far is doing ok. He is staying strong!
