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.

Jessica's FB update

This week has been an AMAZING week at home! Braden has done all the normal little boy things that a two year old would do in the summer. We have been to the park, swimming, and playing at home! We have had a blast enjoying time together. I wish I could do this all the time! It has been a nice break since his last chemo without having to return to the hospital for anything. We will return for Chemo on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday next week. He will be receiving medicine that made him throw up for three days during his second cycle. We pray that he tolerates it well and we also pray that this will be his last cycle of chemo. Originally the oncologist said that he would do four rounds and then we would scan again to determine surgery or more chemo. I am asking for HUGE prayers this time, and know it can be done because all things are possible with GOD. We are praying that his tumor is mature and there is no more cancer. We are also praying that it has shrunk and his body will just take care of the rest. I have been very anxious lately thinking about the possibility of surgery. Basically, the position of the tumor would make surgery very risky and he would have to be cut open across his entire stomach, just the thought of my baby having to go through that gives me so much pain. We are praying that GOD will take care of the tumor because HE is our ultimate physician and Braden will continue to live a happy and healthy life. Thank you so much for praying this with us.
