Mile #72 Braydon
On March 5, 2015, due to the snow, a state of emergency was declared in Maryland. But the snow wasn't the real emergency. March 5, 2015 was the day Braydon was diagnosed with pre-B Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). At the age of 8 (6.5 weeks before he turned 9) he started his journey. Fast forward almost 3.5 years ... he finally finished treatment this past June, the 22nd to be exact, at the age of 12. There is so much to fill in between those dates, and even since chemo ended, but I don't even know where to begin. So I will just tell you a little bit about Braydon that has nothing to do with his cancer. Because he is more than the cancer, and he hates cancer even being mentioned at times. Braydon is an empath, an old soul. His heart is so big that I sometimes wonder how it fits inside his body. Braydon LOVES: The Beatles (hence the picture that I have attached), the beach and collecting sea shells, animals - from his pets to squirrels to stray cats, and his family (even admits to loving his mum). He wants to be a Geologist when he grows up.
Braydon believes in Bigfoot/Sasquatch. And we all believe in all of you!
With (So Much) Gratitude,
