My Story

Brandon (or B-Man as he was known to all who loved him) had such a zest for life. He found fun in everything he did. His first love was baseball. He could name and recognize more players than a lot of grown men! He started playing as soon as he could walk. Second only to baseball was the Power Rangers. He spent countless hours quizzing us on all of the different characters. B-Man spent the majority of the nine months after diagnosis in a hospital transplant room, but it certainly didn't slow him down any! We would spend all day playing baseball (yes.. in the hospital room, if you can imagine), coloring, drawing and playing power rangers. He underwent extensive chemotherapy and countless tests and procedures, more than a 3 year old should ever have to endure. Despite it all, he never complianed and up until the last 2 months, hardly had any days where he was not up to his usual crazy self. Although he was with us for such a short time, he has changed our lives forever. We miss him SO much. He will always be our hero and continues to inspire us each and every day.
