Bruce's co-workers and friends are uniting to support his son Braden as he recovers from open heart surgery. Please show your support!

Wheat Ridge Deputy City Clerk Bruce Roome's son Braden, who is 11 years old, was recently diagnosed as having a 2 cm hole in his heart. Doctors think the hole has been in Braden's heart since birth but went undetected until now.

The hole in his heart has been allowing too much blood to flow into his lungs which has led to chronic illnesses including bouts with bronchitis and pneumonia.

Braden has also had growth and under weight issues as a result of this condition.

Braden will undergo open heart surgery on Thursday, June 28th to permanently repair the hole in his heart.

The faimly expects substantial out-of-pocket expenses for Braden's surgery and recovery. Please support your fellow Wheat Ridge team member during this diffcult time.

If you prefer to mail a check, please do so in Bruce's name and mail to: Janice Smothers, City of Wheat Ridge 7500 W. 29th Avenue, Wheat Ridge, CO 80033

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Bruce via his email at:
