Brayden is the strongest kid ive ever met and has a very complex case. Please visit his journal at www.caringbridge.org/visit/braydenwendor

6yr old Brayden Wendorff was diagnosed with chiari malformation type 1 in 2009 and had 2 brain surgeries in 2010. In December Brayden suffered from a stroke in the Left side of his brain. We spent almost the entire month of December into January in Wolfsons Childrens Hospital until we were told to seek out of state opinion because they had run every test they could think of and we had seen 7 different sub-specialties and no one could come up with a clear answer other than he had 2 strokes and he had a full clot in one artery of his brain and a narrowing in another artery. We recently traveled to Childrens Hospital of Boston for second opinion, and THEY WERE FABULOUS we absolutely loved them. I wish they would move here unfortunately that is not an option so in 3 mos, and 6 mos, and 12 mos, we will have to make the trip back to Boston, which is extremely expensive, I am a stay at home mom as besides Brayden having chiari, so does his older brother, My husband is in Law Enforcement, and we have 2 other children one who has kidney issues. Any help that you can give would be GREATLY appreciated! Our next trip will be in June but I would like to be able to book the flight in advance so im not paying so much because im buying 2 weeks out. We also make 2-3 trips to the drs in a week most weeks and we live 37 miles from our closest dr. With the price of gas and being a one income family things get pretty tight. So, in closing I would like to personally thank you in advance for any support you are able to give!!!
