Loved ones describe Brayden as a silly, loving kid.

St. Jude patient Brayden smiling a toothy smile while looking camera left.

In the summer of 2018, Brayden’s family moved across the country. Just one month after settling into their new home, their lives drastically changed again, but this time the circumstances were unplanned...and unimaginable.

Brayden was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor called medulloblastoma.

He underwent brain surgery the day he was to have started kindergarten.

Following surgery, Brayden needed additional treatment and was referred to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.


Families, like Brayden's, will never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food.

At St. Jude, he received chemotherapy as well as proton therapy at the first proton therapy center in the world dedicated solely to children.

St. Jude is an amazing place. When you go through something like this, you want the best treatment, and that’s what St. Jude provided.
