Blessings for Braden

Welcome to our blog! Braden is a 2 year old little boy who has been diagnosed with Neuroblastoma. Nueroblastoma is a childhood cancer that is most often found in children under the age of 10. Our hope is that God will heal Braden completely and that his story will help others draw closer to Jesus.

Boozer BBQ Help

If anyone out there is interested one way you can help Jessica and Brandon, one of our current needs is volunteering to help with the BBQ Benefit on May 19th.  Here is a link to the volunteering website.  Just pick an event or an area where you feel you can help and we would greatly appreciate it.  Also, if you haven't RSVP-ed to the actual event please do so on the "Boozer BBQ Benefit" on Facebook.  If you aren't on Facebook, no worries, it's just a way for us to get an idea about how many people to expect.

Jessica's post today

The rest of this week has gone well. Braden continues to act like his normal self. He has complained a few times of his "magic button" aka "port" hurting him. And he has said that he is tired a few times. But, nothing seems to be slowing him down. He is still the same sweet boy he's always been. I took him to get his hair cut today and the hair dresser said that she knew a little boy that went thr...ough chemo. He was sweet before hand and a terror after. I just pray that God will keep his hands on Braden during his chemo treatments and that the medicine will not harm him. Why don't people think before they speak?? GOD has been so good to us!! I know that God has great plans for Braden. He is one special miracle for sure.

Update 4/26/12

Braden has his last round of chemo for this cycle today. It was not pleasant when they accssed his port. He was in a lot of pain. He has done a lot better with IVs. The whole point of the port is to make it less painful. I am just hoping that the reason it hurt so much is because it is still very tender since he just got it on Monday. I am praying that the next time they access his port it will go... much smoother. It is no fun having to hold down your screaming baby so that someone can hurt him. How do you explain that to a two year old? It just breaks my heart. On another note, we did get some peace of mind today. The oncologist told us that he is sure that Braden will be cured!!!!! PRAISE GOD! I just have to share that at the same moment we heard this news, my aunts prayer group was meeting and praying for Braden at this very moment. HOW AWESOME OUR God IS!!
