On June 27, 2017, Braydan was watching a neighbor ride his 4 wheeler when this neighbor decided to charge at Braydan going 40 mph and ran over his foot. Braydan was rushed by ambulance to the hospital where he has undergone 7 surgeries. One surgery, he had 3 of his toes removed and it was the hope of the doctors that this might save his foot. Two weeks later on July 31, 2017, the worst case scenario happened, Brayden's leg had to be amputated. They removed his leg just below his knee. Braydan is 12 years old going into the 7th grade at Monroe Middle School. He is active and extremely athletic and when he grows up, he plans on being a professional football player.
To say this has been devastating on Braydan's family is an understatement. His mom, Jessica, is a single mother with 4 children. She has not been able to work since this happened and will not be able to work as Braydan needs round the clock care. I am trying to help out in anyway I can and Jessica needs as much assistance financially to help keep a roof over her familys head. Please know that any amount that you can spare would be greatly appreciated. If you can't donate, please just pray for Braydan. He has a very long road ahead of him, but with family, friends and support from our amazing community, I know he will come out of this stronger than ever.
