What is the Cause: Bryaden Hughes who is diagnosed with a rare form of cancer known as Ewing’s Sarcoma. Here is his story………

Brayden Hughes is a 13 year old boy that’s already overcome several health challenges in his young life. He was a premature baby that led to months living in neonatal intensive care centers, eventually having his first surgery at 11 months old. By 3 years old he was diagnosed with Autism attending numerous amounts of speech and occupational therapies to better prepare him for kindergarten. This once nonverbal boy, began speaking and with the help of an aide at school, progressed nicely throughout his elementary school career. By middle school kids began to bully Brayden to the extent that he had to be homeschooled. Just when things began to calm down ; the unbearable news was given.

brayden

Brayden was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma of the spine. A rare cancer that began in his spinal cord, and spread, fracturing several vertebrae. He has been receiving chemotherapy since July of 2015, and completed 6 weeks of radiation and is still going strong. Upon going to various hospitals, he learned a lot about pediatric cancer families and in doing so, realized that even in his darkest days, there’s a child somewhere fighting much harder than he ever had to. He began a charity where he takes donations and purchases much needed supplies for kids with cancer touching many families through his philanthropic work, and also boosting his own self worth a great deal. His strength through adversity speaks volumes to his maturity; and he hopes to one day be cancer free himself.
