CHANGE Brayden’S LIFE
11 Years Old
Brayden was an active boy, who loved to surf, skateboard, and snowboard, (and was really good at all three!) In February of 2018, his family took him to Mt. Bachelor in Oregon during ski week so he could get some great snowboarding in. During their vacation, Brayden went over a jump and landed on his head.
Brayden was airlifted from the mountain to Bend then airlifted again after stabilized to Randall Children’s Hospital in Portland, and left in a coma for 2 months while he recovered. His traumatic brain injury left him hemiplegic, with no usage of his right arm and right leg., although his right leg is already making amazing progress. His mother and father had to travel back and forth from California to Oregon, caring for their two younger daughters, while also being there for Brayden everyday.
He is now back home after 3 months of rehabilitation, but is still wheelchair bound for now. Our foundation has provided an amazing in-home caretaker for Brayden so his mother can have a break and take her other children to their sports practices and appointments. Our foundation will continue to help Brayden as he fights to enjoy all action sports again!
