Baby Braxtons Final Expenses

On Monday November 20th, 2017 1 year old Baby Braxton was found asleep not breathing. Paramedics were called and CPR was admistered while they were en route.


Braxton was taken to Holland Hospital in Holland MI where he was stabalized for transport to Helen Devos Pediatric Hospital in Grand Rapids, MI. 

He was placed on a ventilator and medically paralized in order to sustain his life. Braxton had to undergo a surgery where doctors had to remove his intestines from his abdomen in order to relieve trapped air from around his lungs. He showed minor improvements from the surgery but now has his intestines on the outside of his little body.
As if this werent tramatic enough, doctors informed us yesterday that Braxton has less than a 1% chance of ever living a normal life again. Due to the lack of oxygen his brain experienced for such an extended period of time, the cells on his brain have started to die and the damage is irrepable.

Braxton will never be able to eat on his own, walk, talk, or tell his mommy and daddy how much he loves them again. To prevent such a low quality of life the decision has been made to allow him to rest peacefully with his Lord and Savior with Angels at his bed.
This is an extrememly tough time for our family and words cannot explain the pain and frustration we are feeling. The funds collected from this Gofundme will be used to give Braxton a proper memorial and funeral while easing the finacial burden on our family.

Any contribution you can make will not only be graciously appreciated but will leave an everlasting impact on our family for a lifetime! Even if you cannot afford to contribute finacially please keep Braxton and our family in your prayers as we prepare for Braxton to transistion to his everlasting home and throne in heaven.
