Brave Like Bracey for Jaden Bracey

Jaden Bracey is a 15 year old boy who is funny, full of life, loves basketball, and the XBox. He is a Sophomore at Waterbury Career Academy. He has a smile that is contagious. His sweet, slightly shy, laid back, and gentle demeanor are just a few things that make him so special. He is loved by all who meet him.

Jaden was diagnosed with Synovial Sarcoma behind his right knee on September 27, 2019. Synovial Sarcoma is a rare type of cancer that affects the soft tissue of the body. There are several small spots that were also detected by scans in both lungs. They are unsure at this time if these areas are cancerous and are monitoring them very closely.

Since the diagnosis he has already completed two rounds of chemotherapy, one blood transfusion, and started radiation.  He tolerated it well and is in good spirits, but he has a long road ahead with more chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery.

Each chemotherapy round requires Jaden to be hospitalized for several days at a time. His parents stay with him at the hospital which causes them to miss work. They have insurance but the treatments are very expensive and they have out of pocket expenses associated with his care. 

This Go Fund Me page has been created to help the family offset the out of pocket medical expenses, gas, food while they're in the hospital, and lost wages.

Thank you for all of the love, prayers, and support that each of you continue to extend to them. It is appreciated more than you can ever imagine
