Help Braedon meet Winter

Braedon is a lively, active, imaginative, silly, and brave 6 and half year old who has been an amputee for 6 years.  Losing his legs at just over 6 months old, our son has learned how to do everything with no feet.  NOTHING has ever slowed him down.  He doesn't get discouraged, but tries and tries again until he can find a way.  A true lover of life, and free spirit - he is happiest outside, enjoying nature.

Braedon has a unique opportunity through Shriner's to go and meet Winter, the dolphin from A Dolphin Tale.  Braedon has always loved animals of all kinds, and especially relates to any that have amputations or prosthetics. 

Winter lives at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium in Florida.  We plan to visit over Spring break of 2016 (3/23-3/30).  While this meeting is coordinated through the aquarium and Shriner's - the cost of getting there is up to us. 

We are saving for this trip as well, but we want it to be MAGICAL and care-free.  Braedon deserves so much more than we can ever offer him on our own.  Please help us make this trip  one that he'll never, ever forget!

Thank You!

Joe & Elaine Monthony
