Wheels for Braxton!
Our sweet angel Braxton Tucker Anders was born to my beautiful sister-in-law Dacia Anders on March 2, 2015. Braxton was born a fighter and has continued to amaze us in every way possible! Our little man happened to be born with an extra chromosome 15. This condition is very hard to explain as there are so many different factors as to why he is affected the way he is. Our baby Braxton was born with pituitary gland issues which affects many things. Braxton is completely blind , he doesn't have the ability to make hormones on his own either which means he will require hormone shots Once he reaches puberty. Braxton has to take hydrocortisone and levothyroxine for the rest of his life. Having an extra chromosome 15 can affect things as simple as eating, Braxton currently has a GI tube and has been tube fed since birth and will most likely have it for the rest of his life. His mother constantly has to monitor his sugar levels and it's a big deal if he even gets a simple cold. Braxton will also be developmentally delayed but is unknown how severe it will be. The list goes on and on but one thing I can tell you is although Braxton has all these issues it does not affect the smile on his face. Regardless of his blindness and other conditions he continues to grow and excel by god's grace! This little boy can sing his ABC's at the top of his lungs, music is a big part of his life! he can count like its no ones business and has started to sit up on his own! Braxton couldn't of done all of this without his Mama and sister's, I have never met anyone as strong as my sister-in-law Dacia, she has been beside Braxton every step of the way, her current job involves caring for her baby boy 24/7, which unfortunately required her to be home and unable to work. Money is obviously very budgeted so I have created this GoFundMe page to ask for your help, My sister is in desperate need of a new car, the car she currently drives is on it's last limb as she has owned it for over 10 years and it has close to 300,000 miles on it. The issues it currently has are not fixable. Dacia and Braxton need our help getting a reliable car, with all of the conditions Braxton has it is important that Dacia is able to take him to and from appointments, to the hospital if ever needed and to Children's hospital for check-ups. We cannot afford for Dacia to be immobile. Thank-you so much for taking time to read this and thank-you for thinking of our angel Braxton. With the grace of god we can make this happen!
