meet Brayden

Brayden was diagnosed with hydranencephaly (parts of his brain have been replaced with cerebrospinal fluid) after receiving an MRI at birth, and given a terrible prognosis. The dr's who didn't believe Brayden would survive the pregnancy, have been astonished with his miraculous improvements that continue to defy the odds. Upon surgery at just a month old to place a VP shunt to control hydrocephalus (fluid build-up in his head) he has done nothing but improve more and more. He will be celebrating his 1st birthday on June 30th 2009, and is growing stronger every day.
