Please help make Brad's senior year of high school special! Any amount will help out. Please also keep him and his family in your prayers.

Brad Noel was diagnosed with duchenne muscular dystrophy when he was 5 years old. His mom's first hint that something was wrong was when he had a hard time climbing the steps on his school bus. He was in a wheelchair by age 9. Unfortunately, dunchenne is a rapid form of md and the life expectancy is only around age 18. Brad turned 18 on May 19, 2011 and he actually coded in the hospital a few weeks ago. The doctors worked on him and brought him back.It was very traumatic for him and his family. He has been on oxygen since he came home from the hospital and so far he is hanging in there with a good attitude.
He is hoping he can go back to school, but with his oxygen his mom is very hesitant about that. Especially after the ordeal at the hospital.
I am Brad's school bus driver and also live right down the street from him. When he was absent a few days I got worried because he just never missed many days of school. I went to visit and found this family has many needs inside their home. The floor in Brad's bathroom is very soft, the front porch has broke boards and no railing. There are many more repairs that need to be done in the home. This family takes very good care of what they have but, wear and tear from time can't be helped. Brad's step dad has been out of work and his mom has to be his full time care taker.
