Braxton's Story


Braxton is a 7 year old child that was diagnosed with stage IV Neuroblastoma in November 2010 which is a disease in which cancer cells form in nerve tissue of the adrenal gland which is located on top of the kidneys.  His most recent scans in June were not what they had hoped for. The cancer has now spread to the bones and lymph-nodes. He made several trips to Philadelphia for a new therapy but unfortunately, it was unsuccessful. The next step will be antibody therapy once the protocol opens up.  

Braxton is truly in the midst of his battle but that has not stopped him from being a wonderful outgoing little guy.  He loves being outside hunting and fishing.  He loves the movies, Cars and Toy Story, and loves country music.
