My Story

Brandan was diagnosed at 10 months. He immediately went onto life support and fought for 42 days through induced coma in the PICU to even begin treatment. He had 245,000 cancer cells at diagnosis and was believed to have 90% or more cells cancerous in his body. He survived 3 respiratory and a cardiac failure amongst other organ failures throughout his fight, yet he never gave up! His courage, bravery, strength and fighting spirit gave us reasons to fight with him every step of the way and we continue to honor his accomplishments with him daily. He received 6 rounds of chemo treatment intravenously and 6 additional rounds in his spinal/brain fluid to treat the cancer that was attacking his nervous system. He celebrated his first year in remission in October of 2008. He enjoys the outdoors, skiing, skating, biking, camping and hiking. He loves his big sister dearly. His contagious smile brings joy to so many every day as he supports efforts to raise awareness and much needed funds for the cure that someday will be found with your help. Please consider supporting a child, a participant, or a volunteer in their courageous bolt effort to help these children and their families.
