This go fund me is set up for my good friend Brandon Suttles. Brandon and his wonderful wife, Brooke , have two precious kids. Harrison is four years old and Delaney is two. In Harrison’s four years of life he has had to have 13 individual surgeries. So this family has already had its share of time in the hospital. Sadly, they’ve had to endure more. This time it’s Brandon. Brandon has been checked for his low platelet levels for the past five years at Tennessee Cancer Specialists. Everything seemed to be relatively ok until a month ago. He started feeling incredibly weak for a few weeks and went to his primary physician. By 9:30 that evening, his Doctor had called him and told him to get to the ER immediately. He was in the hospital for four days. All his blood levels had dropped, including his hemoglobin which was down to 5.8. For reference it should be between 13-15. He was given two units of blood and had a bone marrow biopsy the next day . The test came back inconclusive with no answers. His blood levels continue to drop. He had to have another two units of blood on October 4th because he had dropped to a 6.6. He is having to have his blood levels checked weekly now while they try to figure out the situation. He goes to Vanderbilt this week for another bone marrow test and other testing. This family has been through so much in such a short amount of time. Being so sick and not knowing the cause, along with taking care of a family with a child who has already undergone 13 surgeries and only 4 years old.... I can’t imagine.
The goal is set at $4,000. That’s just for what Brandon is having to pay for what has occurred so far. This doesn’t include anything with what they are about to incur with Vanderbilt and doesn’t include any of the hospital bills from their sons 13 surgeries. Even if you can’t donate, please pray or send positive thoughts for Brandon and his family. They have quite the road ahead of them and any help whether monetary or spiritually will be much appreciated.
